1 Killed, 3 Injured at T.I. Concert in New York City Venue


One concertgoer was killed and three others were injured Wednesday night as gunfire broke out at a Manhattan venue where rap star T.I. was to perform, authorities said.

Police initially reported three people — two men and a woman — were injured by bullets at Irving Plaza ahead of the show.

The gunfire sent panicked music fans scrambling for a safe haven, as seen in brief video footage tweeted by @markygeezy.

The New York Fire Department separately reported four people injured at the show in the downtown area, where the call for help came in at 10:13 p.m., per a FDNY spokesman.

The victim in critical condition was taken to Beth Israel Medical Center, while two others were transported to Bellevue Hospital and a fourth, with only minor injuries, was taken elsewhere for treatment, the FDNY said.

Police had made no arrests in the shooting as of 12:20 a.m.:

At a news conference, police said the shooting took place in a third-floor green room area of the venue while two performers were on stage:

A DJ for Atlanta-based T.I. was starting the event when the mayhem broke out, the New York Times reported.

ABC News reported "A 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man was shot in the stomach," while "a 26-year-old woman was shot in the leg."

Concertgoers took to Snapchat to document the fracas and its aftermath.


It was not immediately clear how many people were inside Irving Plaza at the time of the shootings.
