A shooting in New York’s Irving Plaza has left at least three people wounded and one of the three in critical condition.

During tonight’s T.I. concert at Irving Plaza near Union Square, shots were fired at about 10 p.m., according to CBS New York. In the shooting, the three people who were confirmed to have been shot all have varying degrees of injuries. One man was shot in the chest–and is in critical condition–a woman was shot in the leg and another man was grazed, according to the New York Post.

At the time of writing, there have not been any arrests made and police continue to investigate. The police have locked the building down and continue to search for suspects.

The concert, which was immediately cancelled after the shooting, was headlined by Atlanta-rapper T.I. and was to feature artists Maino, Uncle Murda, Anderson .Paak and others.
