Twenty-two people have been killed and many others injured after an explosion at an Ariana Grande concert at the  Manchester Arena in England on Monday. 

According to reports, Ariana was ending the concert when tragedy struck.

The Manchester Arena posted on their website that the explosion occurred as concertgoers were leaving the venue.

Chief constable of Greater Manchester Police, Ian Hopkins, said that police are treating the explosion as a terrorist attack.

“We are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise,” Hopkins said.

Parents of teens that attended the concert who have not yet returned are desperately searching for their children.

Concertgoers were treated outside the venue following the blast.

Ariana took to Twitter later that night, saying that she is extremely sorry to all those affected.

“Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words,” she wrote.
