No. Observations which falsify a theory do not demonstrate that it is correct. They only show that it isn't. If no event horizon is found there's going to be a major kerfuffle about it.

how is 19 million dollars going to let you see an object that is infinitesimally small and half the galaxy away ?
A detailed analysis of its spectrum allowed scientists to infer the characteristics of its companion. “It turned out to be an object with a mass between 3.8 and 6.9 solar masses,” said Ignasi Ribas of CSIC at the Institute of Space Sciences. “An object like that, invisible to telescopes and with such large mass, can only be a black hole because no neutron star with more than three solar masses can exist.”
Also the orbit of stars around the galactic centre give a very very very good indication that there is something invisible and massive at the centre.
Data indication is one thing. Accurate interpretation of data indication is something entirely different.
