He also called on the public to share any footage that they may have taken about the shooting or the attacker with the police, but refrain from sharing it on social media.

British pop star Harry Styles was going to perform at a venue close to the Fields but his concert was canceled.

Styles on Twitter said that he is “heartbroken” and “devastated,” adding: “I’m sorry we couldn’t be together. Please look after each other.”
