Troy Ave has been indicted on attempted murder charges stemming from a May 25 shooting incident inside the green room at the Irving Plaza venue in New York.
Prosecutor Christine Keenan announced the Grand Jury’s decision to indict during a court hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday (June 9). “I’m filing a certificate of affirmative grand jury action,” she stated (via New York Post). Troy Ave was not in attendance.
As we previously reported, a video features Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, leaving the VIP area holding a gun in his hand and shooting it in the direction of fleeing clubgoers.
The Brooklyn rapper’s friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, was killed during the melee. Troy Ave, himself, was shot in the leg. Two other people, including Maino’s girlfriend Maggie Heckstall, were wounded as well.
Three guns, including the one that killed McPhatter, were found hidden inside a secret compartment inside the vehicle that Collins was driving in to the hospital.
On Monday (June 6), Troy Ave released his Free Troy Ave mixtape, which he proclaimed his innocence in the case.
Collins is due back in court July 7. He is being held without bail.
