Troy Ave has managed to duck murder charges, but he’s still in a world of trouble. The Brooklyn rapper has been indicted on various charges, all felonies, stemming from the shooting at a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza in NYC.
Although Troy Ave was seen firing a gun in surveillance footage, ballistics revealed it was not the weapon that left one man dead.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, a grand jury has indicted Troy on one count of attempted second degree murder and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Troy’s bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, was killed during the shootout last month, but clearly ballistic testing did not lead back to the weapon Troy was seen firing that night on video.
His attorney, Scott Leemon, tells TMZ … “The video does not show everything nor explain what happened in the VIP room before Troy came running out, as a victim, after he was shot.”
If convicted, Troy Ave is looking at football numbers in the bing. The rapper’s will be requesting bail for his client sometime this week.
Considering what the NYPD thinks about rappers, he has his work cut out for him.
