One Dead, Three Injured After Shooting at NYC Venue Where T.I. Scheduled to Perform

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Four people were shot -- one fatally -- at New York City's Irving Plaza Wednesday night, prior to rapper T.I. taking the stage, NYPD have confirmed.

The gunfire erupted at 10:15 p.m. inside Irving Plaza, located just east of Manhattan's Union Square. T.I. was inside the venue but he was not performing. There were two performers on the stage at the time of the shooting, NYPD Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubry said at a press conference Thursday night.

Aubry said three males and one female were shot. One of the males was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital. Two of those shot were transported to Bellevue Hospital, while the other was transported to NYU Medical Center.

It was unclear how many people were inside Irving Plaza at the time.

Aubry said NYPD have no description of the suspects, and no one in custody, although police are recovering ballistic evidence.

There were security guards at the venue, and metal detectors at the entrance.

Irving Plaza could not immediately be reached for comment.
