Troy Ave Pleads Not Guilty To Attempted Murder In T.I. Concert Shooting

Troy Ave

(Radio.com) Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder after a shooting last week that left one dead and three injured at a T.I. concert at New York music venue Irving Plaza.

Troy Ave was arraigned on Monday (May 30) in New York and could be charged with murder after an alleged fist fight backstage at a T.I. concert went terribly wrong, according to the New York Daily News.

Prosecutors say the rapper, aka Roland Collins, "recklessly fired a gun five times in a crowded venue" with no concern for the consequences. Meanwhile, his defense attorney Scott Leemon says otherwise.

"The most important thing in this case is that Troy Ave is an actual victim here," Leemon told AllHipHop. "He didn't shoot himself, he didn't shoot his lifelong friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter." Read more here.
