Troy Ave Charged with Attempted Murder in Connection with T.I. Concert Shooting

Troy Ave has been arrested in connection with last night’s shooting at a T.I. concert.

The Brooklyn rapper allegedly fired his gun at New York’s Irving Plaza before accidentally shooting himself in the leg, according to the New York Daily News. He has been arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and illegal weapons possession.

Sources tell the newspaper that Ave can be seen firing a gun in surveillance clips and that he could have been aiming for Maino, who was coming off the stage at the time of the shooting. “There is clear video, very graphic video,” an insider told NYDN. “He walks right out, women all around, and starts shooting his gun. It’s an ongoing rap group rivalry, him and Maino.”

However, Maino’s lawyers have countered these claims in a letter, according to HipHopWired. “There is no feud between rappers Maino and Troy Ave and never has been,” the letter reads.

Maino also refuted claims of his involvement on Instagram.

In part, his statement reads: “I woke up to the usual FALSE and ridiculous lies being circulated by irresponsible members of the media. What transpired was absolutely NOT the result of MYSELF or ANYBODY IN MY CAMP , ENTOURAGE, TRAVELING PARTY or ORGANIZATION IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.”

UPDATE: Troy Ave, 33, has been charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the NYPD.
