The Bucks announced before the game that the Deer District had officially reached the 11,000-person capacity set for the watch party before Game 6. Moreover, about 17,700 people spectated the match at Fiserv Forum.

Witnesses outside the arena said they heard gunshots with a little more than a minute remaining in the fourth quarter of Boston's 108-95 victory, which sent many in the crowd into a frenzy, running in several different directions.

A large police presence remained outside the arena hours after the game's conclusion. An investigation is ongoing.
