Minor injuries when people rush from car show

ATLANTA (AP) -- A spokeswoman for an Atlanta convention center says about 10 people suffered minor injuries after a crowd began running to leave a car and bike show.

Georgia World Congress Center communications director Jennifer LeMaster says some commotion caused people to start running at the crowded event Saturday. She says 10 had minor injuries and that none were transported to the hospital.

LeMaster says that police confirmed that no shots were fired. Police are investigating.

The Car and Bike show was sponsored presented by local radio stations. It ended early after the commotion occurred.
