Troy Ave

NYPD investigators recovered the gun used by rapper Troy Ave to shoot up a rap concert headlined by T.I. in Union Square last week.

1 man was killed and 3 wounded — including Troy Ave who accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, 30, was released from a NY hospital and is being held without bond on attempted murder and weapons charges.

DNA Info — A gun recovered from a hidden compartment inside the car that was used to drive rapper Troy Ave to the hospital after last week’s deadly shooting at Irving Plaza was matched by investigators to the bullet that killed the rapper’s friend and bodyguard, DNAinfo New York has learned.

Troy Ave, wounded and limping, can be seen on surveillance video released by the NYPD running out of a small VIP room with bodyguard Ronald McPhatter just a few feet ahead of him moments before the rapper opened fired at someone — believed to be rapper Maino — who they were chasing from a jam-packed VIP room on the venue’s second floor.

Sources say 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.

A short time later, the vehicle showed up at NYU Langone Hospital, where the wounded rapper was dropped off outside the emergency room.

The NYPD had dispatched uniformed officers to various local hospitals after the shooting to see if anyone injured in the melee turned up.

Several NYPD officers at NYU Langone watched as Troy Ave was dropped off, and they quickly stopped his car from leaving.

NYPD Auto Crime detectives, armed with a warrant, later inspected the vehicle, and discovered a secret compartment inside the car.

Meanwhile, Maino’s girlfriend Maggie Heckstall, 26, who was shot in the leg, plans to file a lawsuit against the NYPD for guarding her hospital room to protect her from further harm.

Don’t save ’em. They don’t want to be saved.

    okay this is just a blatant lie now. This news report is all wrong and if you get your news from SANDRA ROSE most likely youre a gossipy little bitch. First off think for yourself. why would you shoot your own friend and kill him, then shoot yourself, and then turn around and shoot a girl who you’re associate with? doesn’t make sense. funny how black people will believe anything the cops will say when its only black people involved. you guys should be ashamed. There are cameras all through out the venue and they release 11 seconds of video? that doesnt seem suspect to you? Idiots do you think white people throw their own under the bus like this? no they stand up for each other. im not a troy ave fan, but after this im definitely supporting him as oppose to you sell outs. FYI they just released a press report saying they believe troy ave was in a scuffle with the shooter for the gun that shot his friend. i bet if you saw your friend get shot you would run and leave him to die. FOH

  • melissaisasnob

    I will tell you how, by acting like the ghost and mr. chicken with a gun. You act all big and tough holding the gun, hiding it, and pulling it out, but when a gunfight breaks out you are swinging it all around like the amateur you are. That’s how.

    ikr

  • okeydoke

    The article said the gun was tied to the bullet that killed his friend. If he didnt kill him, how did he get the gun?

  • Orchidjones

    Remember the rumors that they were actual brothers?
    Raheem (Khalil Kain) was fine up until he did that R ape scene in For Colored Grls…and he was a jerk off in Love Jones. I love Negrasian men… 🙂

  • Orchidjones

    lol. Snoop better stop trying to mess up Tip Money! 🙂

  • GubmentCheeze

    This honey badger looking boy killed his own friend? Its never worth it its just rap smh. These new rappers are not only ugly but extremely stupid. As far as Maino goes….I dont know him…

  • goat

    He either took the gun during the scuffle or the shooters left it after they shot Troy, the BG, and the other wounded. He was already shot when we see him on video shooting the gun left behind.

  • Monday

    Wait … The model wants to sue because the NYPD did their job??

    I read three times and am still confused..

    And whyyyy isn’t she suing the club and management for poor security service?? Or Troy ave himself??

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    And what was this dumb negroe purpose? Black folks don’t know how to act

  • TeeTee

    she better stay away from my gausband….. #dangit

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I think she was mad they rode with her to the ambulance and blocked family and friends from coming to see her. Basically they did their job but she felt harassed. They were investigating to the fullest and didn’t know how her story fit in. Sounds lke she was hindering their investigation .

  • Starsky Willows

    What shooter leaves a gun behind?

  • Starsky Willows

    he picked up the gun that was used to shoot him?
    ^^^^^^^^^
    What???? So the shooter just said here you go Troy? No…

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    oh..now all this ish makes sense…carry on

  • goat

    Shat happens, maybe they dropped it or lost it during the scuffle.
