Tip releases heartfelt statement on last night's senseless shooting.

T.I. has made an official statement following last night’s incident at Irving Plaza where Troy Ave pulled a Cheddar Bob and shot himself in the leg, before turning the trigger on others.

Taking to his IG a couple hours ago, Tip had the following message for the victims of last night's senseless act...

“My heart is heavy today. Our music is intended to save lives, like it has mine and many others,” the 35-year-old rapper wrote in the post. “My heartfelt condolences to the family that suffered the loss & my prayers are with all those injured. Respectfully, Tip.”

In total, 4 people were shot and 1 has been pronounced dead. Troy Ave was just recently arrested Thursday afternoon after footage surfaced online of him being the trigger man. If you missed all that, peep it here, and keep it locked as we continue to update you with further details as they become available.

Edit: Rumors have been circulating on the twittersphere that Troy Ave’s shooting was aimed at Maino and his camp. However, Maino is denying those allegations and took to IG to state his peace (read below)…

Rest In Peace Bro. God bless.

First and foremost my deepest condolences to the family & friends of Ronald Mcphatter who was tragically killed last night. Despite having to cope with more senseless violence. I woke up to the usual FALSE and ridiculous lies being circulated by irresponsible members of the media. What transpired was absolutely NOT the result of MYSELF or ANYBODY IN MY CAMP , ENTOURAGE, TRAVELING PARTY or ORGANIZATION IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. We entered the venue respectfully as always and exited in shocked like all other concertgoers. For the last 5 years Troy Ave, his team and I have had a great working relationship. Not only have we performed and done several songs together but we've had many personal conversations about life our goals and efforts as musicians. Despite media reports to the contrary, there are No "ongoing beefs" or "entourage issues." It always has been and always will be good relations between myself AND MY TEAM and @TroyAve @Hovain @YoungLitoBsB and the BSB crew. Our deepest sympathies again to family of Ronald McPhatter and a speedy recovery to Troy Ave. The movement will not be stopped. #BROOKLYNUNITED #HEARDYOU
