One person was killed and three others wounded when a gunman opened fire inside a concert venue in New York City on Wednesday, May 25, where rapper T.I. was about to perform, police have confirmed to the Associated Press.
The shootings took place around 10:15 p.m. at Irving Plaza near Manhattan's Union Square. The hip-hop artist was due on stage but had not yet appeared when the gunfire occurred.
Video shot inside and later shared via social media showed chaos as music fans rushed to try and exit the venue, while others tried to help an injured person on the floor.
Initially, police told the AP that a 34-year-old man had been shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man had taken a bullet to the stomach. Both were hospitalized in critical condition. One of these people later died.

Information then emerged that a 26-year-old woman had been shot in the leg. A fourth person, wounded in the leg, walked into a hospital later in the evening.
Representatives for T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, were referring all questions about the shooting to police.
On Christmas Day last year, the rapper and reality star revealed that he and wife Tiny were expecting a baby.
