This is so sad.
On Wednesday evening, one person was killed and three others were wounded when shots were fired at T.I.‘s concert in NYC. Oh no!
It’s said that a gunman opened fire around 10:15 p.m. at the Irving Plaza near Manhattan’s Union Square. The No Mediocre rapper was NOT yet on stage when the violent scene occurred.
Footage of the shooting (below) shows fans rushing to exit the venue as a few others try to help the injured person on the floor. The police initially informed press that a 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and another took a bullet in the stomach. Tragically, the 33-year-old man shot in the stomach was later declared as dead.
However, two other victims have emerged as a 26-year-old woman and another man took themselves to a nearby hospital for leg injuries. Oh man.
The police have since collected ballistic evidence and are canvassing for video of the crime. Unfortunately, it’s unclear how many shooters may’ve been involved and there aren’t any current suspects. Here’s hoping they find out what EXACTLY went down sooner than later.
Our thoughts are with the victims’ friends and family during this trying time.
