Three men and one woman were shot during the rapper's concert in New York on Wednesday night. One victim later died at the hospital.

Shots were fired during T.I.'s concert at Irving Plaza in New York City's Union Square on Wednesday, leaving one person dead and three others wounded, according to the New York City Deputy Commissioner of Public Information.

Ambulances were on the scene and the street was shut down around the venue while on-lookers tried to get a glimpse at what had happened.
