Minutes before rapper T.I. was set to play a concert at New York’s Irving Plaza, gunshots were fired, leading to mass hysteria as concertgoers rushed from the club.

A New York police department spokesperson tweeted that four people had been shot. XXL Magazine reported that police had evacuated the building, and according to Pix11, about 1,000 fans were in attendance at the show.

Within minutes of the reported shooting, pictures and videos began to filter onto Twitter showing the aftermath.

Seven months after dozens of people were shot and killed at an Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris, this was the scene late Wednesday night in New York.
