Police say one person was killed and another three people injured Wednesday night in a shooting at a New York City concert venue where hip-hop artist T.I. was performing.
 
The incident, which happened backstage according to CNN , occurred around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at Irving Plaza, near Manhattan's Union Square.
 
Unidentified victims have been described by police as a 34-year-old man who was shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man who was shot in the stomach. One of those men died, but officials have not released which one.
 
A 26-year-old woman was also hospitalized after being shot in the leg, while a fourth person -- a 30-year-old man -- walked to a hospital on his own, police said.
 
No arrests have been made in the incident.
 
Video footage shows people frantically scrambling out of the venue.
 
According to CNN, T.I. was in the building but two others were performing at the time of the incident. T.I. did not end up making an appearance on stage.
 
Prior to the incident, T.I. was also scheduled to perform at the 1 OAK nightclub, a separate nighclub, later in the evening. Authorities have since shut that event down.
