It happened around 10.15 pm Wednesday at Irving Plaza, near Manhattan's Union Square.

Police said a 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man was shot in the stomach. One of the men later died at a hospital, police did not say which one. A 26-year-old woman was shot in the leg. Police said a fourth person walked into a hospital on their own.

Elijah Rodriguez, who was at the concert with his sister, said that TI was supposed to go onstage at around 9 or 9.30 pm but "he never showed up." He said TI was not onstage at the time shots were fired.

Representatives for TI, whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr, said they were referring all questions about the shooting to the police.

No arrests were made.

No other information was immediately available.

Irving Plaza is a 1,025-person ballroom-style music venue.
