One person is dead and three others are injured after a shooting took place during a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza in New York City Wednesday night, an NYPD spokesperson confirmed to Complex. T.I. had not yet appeared on stage when the incident took place.

The spokesperson told Complex that the shooting happened at 17 Irving Place. Irving Plaza, a music venue, was evacuated, according to tweets from concert-goers. 

Here's footage of the crowd clearing out when shots were fired:

Police said the victims included three men and one woman. One of the men, 33, was shot in the stomach, and died at Mount Sinai Beth Israel​ hospital. The two other victims, a 34-year-old man who was shot in the chest and a 26-year-old woman who was shot in the leg, are being treated at Bellevue Hospital Center. A 30-year-old man, who was shot in the leg, is being treated at the New York University Hospital privately.

Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubry said in a statement that the shooting happened on the third-floor, green-room area when Maino and Uncle Murda were on stage. 

According to Karen Civil, there were reports that rapper Troy Ave's crew was involved in the shooting.

50 Cent paid a visit to Bellevue Hospital early Thursday morning. "I'm here to support my friend, his girl was shot," 50 toldPIX 11. "What's happened here is not good." According toXXL, 50 also visited Troy Ave. Though nothing has been confirmed by the NYPD, reports have surfaced that the man who died is BSBBanga, a member of Troy's entourage. 

T.I. tweeted his condolences on Thursday after the shooting:

Complex reached out to a rep for T.I. who referred all inquiries to the NYPD. Irving Plaza did not immediately respond to a request for comment. We will continue to update this story as it develops.
