Troy Ave was shot several times in Brooklyn on Christmas Day while driving to to visit family members. The incident took place on Sunday afternoon while the rapper was making his holiday run to spend some time with some family members
Billboard reported that the rapper, whose real name is Roland Collins, was shot in his arm and grazed in his head by a bullet. He was driving Maserati in Brooklyn while heading to spend Christmas with some family member. He was taken to the hospital and listed in stable condition for non-life threatening injuries.
“Tonight, Troy Ave was targeted again… on Christmas,” Troy Ave’s attorney, Scott Leemon, said in an interview. “In Brooklyn, going to meet his family for the holiday, he was shot two times. Thankfully, he will survive the second attempt on his life. As we have said from the beginning — he is a victim. We pray for his speedy recovery.”
Earlier this year Troy Ave was involved in a shooting at a T.I. concert in New York where his body guard, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, was shot and killed. Another person was also shot and injured, while Troy Ave was shot in the leg. He was also charged with murder but that charge was eventually dropped.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent has visited Ave in the hospital. The G-Unit rap legend confirmed the visit on Instagram with a photo of the two in a hospital room. “Dope boy Troy all good, Merry Christmas,” 50 Cent wrote on IG.
