It’s still not clear exactly what Happened. Rapper Troy Ave appears to have shot 3 people and may have also shot himself or have been shot by someone else. News of shootings at concerts or public events are not only extremely rare in NYC but carry horrible echoes of shootings and bomb attacks in Europe and elsewhere in recent months.
However in this case whatever caused the fight and susequent attack using a gun appears to have arisen over events in the Green Room at 17 Irving Place, which was filled with guests invited to see rapper T.I. perform and has no political significance whateveer.
One person was killed and 3 injured during the gun fight and Troy Ave has been arrested as he is clearly identified as the shooter in the video. It is exected the NYPD will release details of what occurred once they have a chance to carry out a full investigation.
