LIL WAYNE had to cut a set short Sunday night when CHAOS erupted over gunshots . . . that never actually happened.
Wayne was in the middle of his outdoor set at the A3C Festival & Conference in Atlanta, when some sort of altercation broke out, and somebody yelled out that they heard gunshots.
The crowd headed for the hills, resulting in 12 people getting hurt. They were just minor things though, like ankle injuries, and people getting cut from jumping fences.
The kicker is, there's no evidence of any guns being fired, or any weapons being involved at all.
Shortly after the chaos, Wayne Tweeted, quote, "Hope everyone at A3C is safe!!"
