Gunfire scattered the crowd tonight in New York City's Irving Plaza, right before T.I. was about to take the stage.
Two men and two women were shot at approximately 10:15 PM. One of the men is unlikely to survive. According to officials and witnesses, the gunfire started in a backstage green room.
Police don't know how many shooters there were, and have no suspects at this point.
T.I.'s concert was obviously cancelled.
Update: Some witnesses are saying Troy Ave's crew started the shooting.
