One concertgoer was killed and three others were injured Wednesday night as gunfire broke out at a Manhattan venue where rap star T.I. was to perform, authorities said.

Police initially reported three people — two men and a woman — were injured by bullets at Irving Plaza ahead of the show.

The gunfire sent panicked music fans scrambling for a safe haven, as seen in brief video footage tweeted by @markygeezy.

The New York Fire Department separately reported four people injured at the show in the downtown area, where the call for help came in at 10:13 p.m., per a FDNY spokesman.

The victim in critical condition was taken to Beth Israel Medical Center, while two others were transported to Bellevue Hospital and a fourth, with only minor injuries, was taken elsewhere for treatment, the FDNY said.

Police had made no arrests in the shooting as of 12:20 a.m.:

At a news conference, police said the shooting took place in a third-floor green room area of the venue while two performers were on stage:

A DJ for Atlanta-based T.I. was starting the event when the mayhem broke out, the New York Times reported.

ABC News reported "A 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man was shot in the stomach," while "a 26-year-old woman was shot in the leg."

Concertgoers took to Snapchat to document the fracas and its aftermath.
