One person was killed and three others injured in a shooting back stage at a TI concert in New York last night.

Police report that the shooting took place at around 10.15pm at the Irving Plaza venue near Union Square, during a support set by Maino & Uncle Murda. Videos uploaded from inside the 1000 capacity venue show fans fleeing after shots rang out.

One man was shot in the chest and killed, while another is in a critical condition after being shot in the stomach. A woman and another man, thought to be rapper Troy Ave, sustained leg wounds. As yet, no arrests have been made.

TI was reportedly inside the venue at the time of the shooting, though left unharmed. He also had a second performance scheduled last night at the nearby 1 OAK nightclub, although this was shut down by police, according to reports.
