Eyewitnesses have described a scene of mayhem, as shots were fired inside the venue and the audience fled. Video purportedly captured inside at the gig shows a panicked crowd scattering.

"Right in front of me, someone was shot right there. People were running and getting stomped on," one gig-goer named Rodney Molina, a 37-year-old from Harlem, told Billboard. "I ran. I ran after that. Everyone started running and pushing people to the floor."

By 11pm, concert-goers were crowded outside the venue and police blocked their exit from the area. Police were shuffling in and out of the building and it's unknown if arrests have been made.

T.I. wasn't on stage at the time of the incident. Irving Plaza, a Live Nation venue, has yet to comment on the situation.

More to come.
