Troy Ave Arrested After Video Shows Him Shooting In Club Before Shooting Himself Over Alleged Beef with Maino[VIDEO]

Now this is what you call a plot twist! We told you about the shootout at T.I.’s concert last night at Irving Plaza which killed one person and wounded two others, including rapper Troy Ave’s childhood friend – even Troy himself reportedly escaped with a graze wound. Well some newly released video footage shows that Troy Ave was actually the one doing the shooting and police are now saying that Troy may have accidentally shot himself! They claim that Troy had an ongoing simmering beef with fellow Brooklynite and rapper Maino that prompted the gunfire. Check out the story as well as Maino’s response to all the drama below….

This is how the NYDailyNews is reporting it….

He was charged with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. He is expected to face a murder charge pending the results of a ballstics test, according to sources.

Troy Ave, who was to perform at the show, was feuding with Maino, who is based in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Maino had just left the stage when his rival blasted at least five shots with a 9-mm handgun in a green room above the stage, sources said.


Video shows the gunman barging into the backstage area around 10 p.m. sporting a gold chain and opening fire as people lunge for cover, knocking over barstools.

“He walks right out, women all around, and starts shooting his gun,” a police source said. “It’s an ongoing rap group rivalry, him and Maino.”
A hip hop producer said that it’s no surprise the performers don’t like each other. “Bed-Stuy and Brownsville, it’s like mixing oil and water,” the producer said.
The 30-year-old Troy Ave, whose real name is Ronald Collins was arrested at NYU Langone Medical Center, sources said.
It was unclear how Troy Ave allegedly shot and killed Ronald (Edgar) McPhatter. The victim’s mother said that McPhatter had known Troy Ave since they were in junior high school.
article-irving-0526City Councilman Jumaane Williams and others who knew McPhatter, said he is shown in the video entering the green room behind Troy Ave and then running past him as the rapper blasts the room.McPhatter’s mother blasted Troy Ave for not calling to offer his condolences…..

McPhatter died doing what he’d done for many years — looking out for Troy Ave, the victim’s mother, Rose McPhatter, said at the Gowanus Houses.
“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,” Rose said.“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.”
Meanwhile, Maino is adamantly denying that he had any type of beef with Troy Ave….“Won’t let them undo what we’re building! No ‘ongoing beefs’ or ‘entourage issues.’ It always has been and always will be good relations between myself AND MY TEAM and @TroyAve @Hovain @YoungLitoBsB and the BSB crew.”Maino aslo offered his condolences to the family of McPhatter, who was just 33-years-old when he was killed in the shooting.“Our deepest sympathies again to family of Ronald McPhatter and a speedy recovery to Troy Ave,” Maino wrote. “The movement will not be stopped. #BROOKLYNUNITED #HEARDYOU”
SMDH… Did Troy Ave just pull a Cheddar Bob/Plaxico Burress move and shoot himself while firing at people in a crowded club all at the peak of his career?! Who does that? To make matters worse, his childhood friend somehow got killed in the melee and the fact that he didn’t call that man’s mother makes him look even more suspect! If this is true, Troy Ave will go down in history as one of the dumbest rappers in Hip Hop history!  We’ll keep you updated on this case as it develops.
