Troy Ave Indicted On Attempted Murder Charge In Irving Plaza Shooting

A grand jury has voted to indict rapper Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, on one charge of attempted murder and two felony weapons charges, The New York Times reports. Last month, Collins was captured on surveillance footage firing a gun at a T.I. concert at NYC’s Irving Plaza in a shooting that left his bodyguard dead and four others, including Collins himself, wounded. The rapper is maintaining his innocence, and has just released a mixtape addressing the situation, on which he claims that he took the gun from a man who tried to “assassinate” him and turned “the tables ’round like a G.” Collins is currently being held without bail at Rikers Island, and he is scheduled to be arraigned in State Supreme Court on 6/22.
