What should have been a great night for hip-hop fans turned deadly after shots broke out at rapper T.I.‘s concert on Tuesday night around 10:15 p.m. in New York City.

Authorities say a 33-year-old man was killed and three other people were wounded when a gunfight broke out at Irving Plaza, a concert venue in Union Square. The victims were three men and one woman, a New York Police Department spokesman said, according to The New York Times.

Witnesses say rappers Maino and Uncle Murda were performing on stage when multiple shots rang out. As of Wednesday, no arrests have been made in relation to the incident. The Times reports that detectives are surveying footage from inside and outside the club.

Social media posts about the shooting showed intense commotion as people scurried to escape harm:

“Right when he was about to go on I heard two gunshots, and right after, there was a stampede,” said Ayo Fagbemi, 21, in an interview with The Times. “There were at least three rounds, but after the second one was when people started running.”

Popular blogger Karen Civil reports that Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave was one of the victims injured in the shooting.
