A riot erupted outside of a concert at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey Sunday night after people reportedly tried to enter the sold out Hot 97 Summer Jam concert illegally.
According to a statement on the New Jersey State Police Facebook page, people were trying to climb over fences and force their way through security.
As tension mounted, concertgoers started throwing bottles at officers in the parking lot. In response, state police shot several rounds of tear gas into the crowd.
