By Laurie Rich Salerno
WALLINGFORD, Conn. — More details emerged Monday about an electronic dance music show that ended in a nightmarish scene Friday night for local emergency responders and at least 22 young people, many underage.
A concert headlined by the artist Pretty Lights began at 9 p.m. at the Oakdale Theatre, and by 9:30 p.m., the first emergency calls were coming from the venue, said Lt. Marc Mikulski, the police spokesman. Representatives of the Oakdale did not return calls Monday.
