The Beerfest Cancelled After Shooting and Stampede



Following a shooting and stampede at the annual Beerfest last night, in Zahir Pajaziti Square, the festival has been cancelled. The organisers have been told to find a different venue in the future, due to the large increase in crowds.

As many as 40 people were injured in the stampede which happened when an argument erupted between two of the patrons which resulted in someone shot in the leg. As soon as the shots were heard, everyone ran into cafes and bars nearby and many falling on glass that had fallen from the tables.
Once a new venue can be found for the Beerfest, the organisors will inform the public.
