Rapper Troy Ave has been arrested and charged with attempted murder in connection with the shooting last night during T.I.’s New York concert. Since possessing a handgun is illegal in New York Troy was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
News broke earlier today that The “Major Without A Deal’ rapper actually shot himself in the leg last night during the incident that ended up killing his bodyguard Banga. Two other people were injured and taken to a local hospital.
The 33-year-old rapper, born Roland Collins, was driven to NYU Langone Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries and then taken into police custody.
Ave’s bodyguard, Banga, was killed in the incident. A 34-year-old male and 24-year-old woman were also shot in the chest and leg, respectively and
were transported to nearby Bellevue Hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Police are still analyzing ballastic evidence to determine if Ave was the one who killed Banga, where he will face a likely murder charge.
Young Lito, a rapper also in Ave’s BSB took to Twitter to call out the reports, writing “Daily News is dickheads that’s bullshit..
