Video of Troy Ave Shooting His Gun in Irving Plaza Surfaces
Video of Troy Ave shooting his gun in New York's Irving Plaza has surfaced. You can watch it above. In the footage, the Brooklyn rapper can be clearly seen firing one shot from his gun.
In light of this footage, Troy Ave was arrested today (May 26) on charges of attempted murder, reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a firearm. The New York Daily News is also claiming the Brooklyn rapper actually shot himself in the leg, leading to the same gunshot wound that put him in the NYU Langone hospital.
Troy Ave was among the three people injured in last night's shooting at the Irving Plaza. The gunfire led to one death as BSB member Ron "Banga" McPhatter was shot in the chest during the chaos.
It is still not clear what caused the shooting at this time. The Daily News reports that an altercation between Maino's entourage and Troy Ave's BSB crew led to the gunfire. The Daily News claims there is some sort of beef between the two. This was refuted by Maino in a statement made earlier today. The rapper said he and Troy Ave had no issues. He asserted that two have great working relationship.
Video of the shooting that occurred inside the green room at the venue has also surfaced courtesy of TMZ. This footage is much more difficult to decipher as it shows numerous people brawling and stumbling over each other in the green room. Multiple gun shots can be heard in the video although no gunfire is visible. You can see that below.
