Woah, I’m not even sure what is happening here, but it’s sad as HELL.
After a surprise shooting in the middle of a T.I. concert, the shooter has been found. He’s also a rapper by the name of Troy Ave, and injured himself along with four others during the concert, and sadly, someone got killed. Not exactly what you’d expect from a T.I. concert; it’s pretty shady, and sounds exceptionally chaotic. People reports:
The rapper, whose birth name is Roland Collins, shot himself in the leg during a struggle at the club, said NYPD officials. A 34-year-old man was shot in the chest and taken to Bellevue Hospital to recover and a 26-year-old woman was shot in the leg and is in stable condition at Beth Israel Hospital.
Ronald (Edgar) McPhatter, 33, was shot in the stomach and was also taken to Beth Israel, but was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The gunman and the victims were given access to the VIP/green room area, according to ABC7 New York.
Detectives are waiting for ballistics evidence to come back to see if he’ll face additional charges. Police are unsure if there was more than one shooter.
On Thursday, NYPD released video footage from the venue that shows Troy Ave firing a gun inside the third-floor green room.
The 33-year-old artist has been charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon, NYPD tweeted along with the video.
Let’s hope we get the story as to why this guy shot up the room, and what’s going to happen to him. So sad!
