Lawyers of Troy Ave to Host Press Conference at Irving Plaza Today
Troy Ave's lawyers will be hosting a press conference later today in regards to a deadly shooting that happened inside of Irving Plaza in New York during T.I.'s concert on May 25.
During TI's concert in NY, backstage a feud happened that involved rapper Troy Ave and left his friend and security guard dead at the scene.
Sources say that Troy Ave confronted Taxstone (Internet Radio Podcaster) about certain comments that he made on his show that he didn't like, which escalated to a fist fight. during that altercation someone pulled a gun out and shot Troy Ave's longtime friend and security guard, Ronald "Banga" McPhatter, which he later died at the scene of the crime. At that point you can see security video footage of Troy Ave chasing someone down and shooting a few shots back.
At first many blogs stated that he shot his friend and security guard with his own gun and also shot himself in the leg. Later to find out, that those stories were false and Troy Ave did not kill his friend or shoot himself but actually was involved in a scuffle that lead to the death of his friend.
Charges against the Troy Ave in the killing of his friend were dropped but he is the only suspect and is accused of second degree attempted murder as well as four counts criminal possession of a weapon.
The press conference will begin at 12:30pm outside Irving Plaza located at 17 Irving Place, New York, NY.
