NEWS: Troy Ave Among Injured In Shooting At T.I. Concert in NYC! []

Shots were fired at New York City’s Irving Plaza on Wednesday night (May 25) ahead of T.I. scheduled performance at the venue. The NYPD confirmed that a 33-year-old man was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital. Three others – including a 34-year-old man in critical condition and a 26-year-old woman in stable condition – were injured. A source later confirmed to XXL that rapper Troy Ave was the third injured person. He suffered a wound from a bullet

graze to his leg.

According to an eyewitness for The New York Times, the shooting occurred after a backstage fight spilled onto the stage during a performance by Maino and Uncle Murda. A gunman opened fire in a VIP green room above the stage, where approximately 50 people were reportedly present. A New York Daily News eyewitness says the shooting occurred over a beef between Troy Ave and Maino’s crews.

“It was a fight over a push, it was over some b——-,” Wilkins said. “It was like 50 or 60 people in the VIP room. It was crazy. It’s crazy more people didn’t get shot.”

UPDATE (May 26, 2016 – 6:32pm):

Police arrived at the hospital that Troy Ave was receiving treatment a few hours ago, and have ARRESTED him for murder. Police claim that they have surveillance video (below) implicating Troy Ave as one of the shooters.
