Gunfire broke out at a concert by T.I. last night (5/27) at IRVING PLAZA in NEW YORK CITY that left one person dead and three others wounded.
THE NEW YORK POST reports, "The carnage began in the green room of the UNION SQUARE venue at about 10p while the opening act — MAINO and UNCLE MURDA — were performing, according to law-enforcement sources. The gunplay then spilled into the area near the stage, causing panic among more than 1,000 fans packed into the music hall."
“There were people blocking each other using each other as shields,” concert goer KIRK ELPHAGE told the paper. “I was in the front of the stage. I was just trying to find an exit to get the hell out.”
One woman, who was wounded in the leg, was visited by 50 CENT at BELLEVUE HOSPITAL CENTER. “I’m here to support my friend, his girl was shot,” 50 CENT told THE POST. “What’s happened here is not good.”
The gunman was still at large early THURSDAY.
