Troy Ave has issued a statement addressing TaxStone’s arrest earlier this week for the Irving Plaza shooting that left his bodyguard and friend dead.
TaxStone, born Daryl Campbell, was taken into custody on Tuesday in connection with the deadly shooting. Authorities also reported that his DNA was found on the murder weapon. The is currently being held without bail after one witness identified him as the shooter.
Troy Ave’s statement comes after he is being accused of snitching on the Tax Season podcaster.
“I view the charges brought today before the SDNY as a positive step in the direction of true justice for what occurred at Irving Plaza that night,” the statements reads, per HotNewHipHop. As we have said since May 26, 2016, Roland Collins (Troy Ave) did not enter Irving Plaza with a handgun the night of the TI concert. He was not responsible for the four shots fired inside the Green Room that took the life of his dear friend (Ronald) McPhatter, and caused injury to him and two other innocent bystanders.
TaxStone was charged with possession of a weapon by a felon, but prosecutors indicated that more charges could be laid out against the radio personality following the testimony of a witness who identified him as the person who pulled the trigger at the Irving Plaza T.I. concert last year May.
The shooting incident left the New York rapper nursing a gunshot wound to his leg and also two bystanders with gunshot injuries. His bodyguard and close friend Ronald McPhatter was shot dead. Ave was originally arrested and charged with the deadly shooting incident but prosecutors later dropped that charge. But that doesn’t mean he is off the hook because he is being sued by the two bystanders who were shot and injured.
