Troy Ave Arrested and Charged In Deadly Irving Plaza Shooting Following ID In Surveillance Video

Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has been arrested in connection with the shooting that took place last night at New York City’s Irving Plaza during a T.I. concert. Three people were wounded with one of the wounded succumbing to his injuries.

The NY Daily News reports:

“An up and coming rapper from Brooklyn with a beef was charged Thursday with opening fire backstage at Irving Plaza during a T.I. concert, killing one and wounding two others, police sources said.

Troy Ave, of Brownsville, accidentally shot himself during the chaos in the leg, sources said. He was charged with reckless endangerment and illegal weapons possession, according to sources.

Troy, who was to perform at the show, had a beef with Maino, who had just left the stage when at least five shots rang out, sources said.

“There is clear video, very graphic video. He walks right out, women all around, and starts shooting his gun,” a source said.”

The fatal shooting victim was Ronald McPhatter an affiliate of Ave’s B$B Banga and his bodyguard. McPhatter and Ave were apparently close and at this time it is unclear why Ave shot him. The victims mother criticized the Brownsville rapper for not reaching out following her son’s death.

“He actually cared a lot about Troy Ave. My wish is that Troy Ave cared as much about my son as he cared about him. I say that because I watched how my son would always bend over backwards to help him. If he [Troy Ave] cared about my son as much as he alleged he does, I would’ve received a call from him. He didn’t call me. He didn’t call any of my other sons.”

According to Police they were waiting on ballistics report before charging Ave real name Rolland Collins with murder. Collins was arrested at NYU Langone Medical Center. Surveillance footage shows Collins running into the green room and immediately start shooting. You can watch the graphic video below at your discretion.

We send our condolences to the family of Ronald McPhatter and our prayers to the families of the other shooting victims. You can read the NY Daily News complete coverage of the incident here.
