A man has been shot and killed at a New York City venue where rapper T.I. was set to perform on Wednesday evening.
The shocking incident took place backstage in the third floor green room area of the Irving Plaza music venue, BBC reports.
T.I. was in the building, but the opening artists were performing at the time the shooting happened around 22:15, New York City Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubry said.
Three men and one woman were shot during the incident and one of the men has died.
The venue’s website states it has a capacity of 1 000 people and is equipped with metal detectors.
