Did Troy Ave Accidentally Shoot Himself At T.I. Concert?

Troy Ave

(Radio.com) Strange evidence seems to be mounting against Troy Ave in the shooting case at a T.I. concert in New York last week that killed one man and injured three others.

The latest theory is that the Brooklyn rapper may have accidentally shot himself in the foot before entering Irving Plaza, the New York club where the shootings occurred.

Police found a gun in a hidden compartment of the car that was used to drive rapper Troy Ave (aka Roland Collins) to the hospital and matched the weapon to the bullet that killed the rapper's friend and bodyguard, according to DNAinfo New York. Police are looking into the possibility that as Troy Avenue pulled his weapon it went off and a bullet struck his foot, then bounced of the wooden floor, striking and injuring bystander Christopher Vinson.

In a surveillance video released by the NYPD, Troy Ave appears wounded and limping following his friend and bodyguard Ronald McPhatter out of a crowded green room moments before opening fire. Investigators believe the bullet was intended for rapper Maino, but that Troy Ave accidentally shot and killed McPhatter.

After the shooting, Troy Ave was captured on another video hobbling along 14th Street to a car driven by a manager and with two women inside, reported Rolling Stone. Read more here.
