PHILADELPHIA -

Two men are shot overnight after seeing a concert in Philadelphia. Now one of them is dead, and police are looking for his killer.

Gunshots rang out on the 100 block of North Columbus Boulevard just before midnight.

Police say a crowd of people followed rapper French Montana's tour bus to a local hotel Thursday night.

The rapper, his band and members of the entourage were onboard the bus. They had just pulled up in front of the Holiday Inn Express following a packed concert at the TLA on South Street.

Car loads of fans had followed them, and more fans were waiting for them outside to arrive.

According to police, the driver was getting off the bus to make arrangements for hotel rooms for everyone, and that is when a car drove by and just opened fire into the crowd.

Police tape now marks off where the two men were shot. The 26-year-old who was killed has been identified as Towann King of Flushing, NY.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the shoulder and is hospitalized in stable condition. We're told he's expected to be OK.

Police say that victim either drove himself or was driven to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and the car he was in was found on the 200 block of South 10th Street. Police say it has several bullet holes, so investigators are holding this car for evidence.

Three people are in custody. However, police aren't saying if any of them is the shooter.

"We did find seven spent shell casings, which indicates that at least seven shots were fired from a semiautomatic handgun," Chief Inspector Scott Smalls said. "Now, we don't know if that's from the shooter, who actually killed and injured those two people, or it was from – some information we're getting, there was a possibility somebody from the bus or from the crowd returned fire. Like I said, we have three people in custody who all had weapons on them. So, it's complicated at this point. Everything is very preliminary, and we're questioning everybody. We're holding the scene. So, we're going to find out what occurred and get to the truth."

Among those being questioned was French Montana. Cameras showed him inside the Holiday Inn Express, where he was questioned by police following the shooting.

We understand that fellow rapper Meek Mill was on the bus with French Montana when the shooting occurred. French Montana tweeted a picture of himself and Meek Mill and complained on Twitter, saying, "Nobody has time for this ----."

Investigators are talking to 25 or more people, including witnesses, members of the ban, members of the entourage and fans, trying to piece this all together.

If you don't know who he is, French Montana is a Moroccan-born rapper who is actually working with Nicki Minaj on a new single called "Freaks."

We showed some behind the scenes clips of the two working on the music video. The song is from French's upcoming album "Excuse My French."
