The hip-hop world was in utter shock yesterday when further details emerged from the shooting at T.I.'s Irving Plaza show on May 25. Troy Ave was not only shot but he also let off some bullets of his own. While many of the details still remain unclear, the speculation amongst the hip-hop community is pouring in at alarming rates and Troy Ave is now in the custody of the authorities. A video has surfaced in which the Brooklyn rapper can clearly be seen firing a handgun. As a result, he's been arrested for attempted murder, reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a firearm.

Troy's longtime friend BSB member Ron “Banga” McPhatter was shot in the chest during the ordeal and was later pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital in New York. Another woman was shot in the leg and an additional male was shot after a bullet reportedly traveled through the floor. The squabble was said to have erupted due to beef between Troy Ave's BSB crew and fellow Brooklyn rapper Maino's posse but the latter rapper has denied all allegations, describing their cliques as unified. "I woke up to the usual FALSE and ridiculous lies being circulated by irresponsible members of the media," posted Maino on Instagram in response to the slander. "What transpired was absolutely NOT the result of MYSELF or ANYBODY IN MY CAMP , ENTOURAGE, TRAVELING PARTY or ORGANIZATION IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM."

T.I. gave his condolences about the unfortunate death while Slim Thug had some not so nice things to say about Troy and Manolo Rose had to clarify a retweet about him wishing death upon the "All About the Money" rhymer. Check out how rappers reacted to the news of Troy Ave shooting a gun at T.I.'s concert and his subsequent arrest below.
