Numerous videos and photographs showed violent beatings as fans crowded around unconscious individuals. Many continue beating them and at times, robbing them. Some also undressed the unconscious spectators.

The violence pushed officials to cancel the game and left the window open to severe sanctions and possiblyremoving Queretaro FC from the soccer league since their fans are believed to be the instigators of the riot.
