Rap artist Fabolous was shot early Tuesday as he stood at a Manhattan parking garage, spurring a sequence of events that left him both hospitalized in stable condition and under arrest, police said.

The rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was shot once in the thigh when a man with a gun approached him and three others and opened fire, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wysokowski said.

The four jumped into a vehicle and fled, attracting the attention of police, who stopped them and discovered two guns in the vehicle, Wysokowski said. All four men were arrested, and charges were pending.

Fabolous, a Brooklyn rapper, is best known for his 2001 hit "I Can't Deny It" and is currently promoting his latest album, "Real Talk."
