NEW YORK - Police say four people have been shot inside a concert venue in New York City, where hip-hop artist T.I. was scheduled to perform.

It happened around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at Irving Plaza, near Manhattan's Union Square.

Police say a 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and a 33-year-old man was shot in the stomach. They're hospitalized in critical condition. A 26-year-old woman was shot in the leg. Police say a fourth person walked into a hospital on their own.

No arrests have been made.

A concertgoer says T.I. was supposed to take the stage around 9 or 9:30 p.m., but never went on.

Representatives for T.I., whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., say they're referring all questions about the shooting to police.
