One person was killed and three injured in a shooting at a New York City concert hall where the rapper T.I. was set to perform.
Police say the gunfire erupted after a dispute in a backstage green room and spilled onto the stage at Irving Plaza in Manhattan.
The suspected shooter is still at-large.
A concertgoer was recording with his phone (watch above) as the chaotic scene unfolded, sending hundreds of fans into a panic.
