The tour for Gilbert and Sullivan concerts ended in tragedy.
A 23-year-old man from New Jersey was arrested in connection with the shooting that left three people dead and two others wounded.
Police say the shooting was a result of a confrontation that erupted outside the Gilbert < Sullivan concert in New York City.
New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill says it appears that a group of people got into an argument outside the venue and that the shooting started outside the concert.
The man who was arrested is being held without bond and is expected to appear in court Monday.
O’Reilly says the suspect has not been identified.
He says it is unclear whether he was an active concertgoer.
Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“It’s an unfortunate situation and the city will be working with the state of New York and the authorities to ensure a swift and safe return to the venues for the concert,” O’Neil said in a statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who were involved in the tragic shooting.”
O’Neill also said the concert was a continuation of a collaboration between the two artists.
He called the shooting an “act of senseless violence.”
The concert was scheduled to take place in downtown New York, but it was canceled after the shooting because of the potential for further violence.
The concert will be held at the Barclays Center, the home of the New York Knicks.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city’s police department will be on the scene, along with the New Jersey State Police and the FBI.
De Blasio said in New Jersey: “Our hearts are broken.
Our hearts are heavy with sadness.
My thoughts and our prayers are with the victims and their families.”
Olivia Miller, who is from New York but who was attending the concert, told the New Yorker she was “just so sad” and “heartbroken.”
She said she heard about three shots and that she was about to go to the back to make sure everyone was okay when the police told her to leave the concert venue.
“I ran out of there like, ‘Oh my god, I’m dead,'” she said.
“I’m like, I can’t believe that happened.”
Miller says she was standing with a friend when she heard the first shot.
“We’re like, who are you?” she said she asked.
“And he said, ‘I’m from New England, I know who you are.
I know where you live.'”
Miller says the police officer told her she was in danger, and she says she told him that she needed to get away from the area.
“He said, I need you to get on the ground, and he turned and ran out,” Miller said.
The suspect is being charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of aggravated assault with a firearm.
The shooting happened outside the Barclays Theater.
O’Reilly tweeted about the shooting.
“The concert for Gilbert And Sullivan was canceled tonight because of an altercation between concertgoers and police officers outside of the venue in NYC.
The concert will now be rescheduled to Sunday in Boston.”
