One Dead, Three Injured At T.I. Concert In New York City
Gun shots broke out during rapper T.I.‘s show at New York City’s Irving Plaza last night (May 25), leaving three concert-goers wounded and one dead.
According to the New York Times, two shots were fired at around 10:15 p.m. in the third-floor green room during rappers Maino and Uncle Murda‘s warm-up set. There is, as of yet, no motive for the shootings and police say that they don’t have any suspects. The victims include Maggie Heckster, 26, Christopher Vinson, 34, Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave, 30, and another 33-year-old male, who was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital.
The NY Post further reports that rapper 50 Cent visited the female victim at the hospital, telling the newspaper “I’m here to support my friend, his girl was shot. What’s happened here is not good.”
There is still no word on how the weapon slipped past metal detectors and got inside the venue.
