NY Daily News reports, Troy Ave has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. The rapper is expected to be charged with murder once the results of a ballistics test have been concluded. It was only one death at the Irving Plaza shooting, which was B$B affiliate, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter. Troy Ave also sustained a gun shot to the leg which is reported to have been a self inflected wound.
Maino commented on the situation being that earlier reports had stated that the shooting started from a feud back stage between him & Troy Ave’s crew but Maino denied his crew had any involvement and he & Troy Ave were n good terms.

First and foremost my deepest condolences to the family & friends of Ronald Mcphatter who was tragically killed last night. Despite having to cope with more senseless violence. 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. We entered the venue respectfully as always and exited in shocked like all other concertgoers. For the last 5 years Troy Ave, his team and I have had a great working relationship. Not only have we performed and done several songs together but we’ve had many personal conversations about life our goals and efforts as musicians. Despite media reports to the contrary, there are No “ongoing beefs” or “entourage issues.” It always has been and always will be good relations between myself AND MY TEAM and @TroyAve @Hovain @YoungLitoBsB and the BSB crew. Our deepest sympathies again to family of Ronald McPhatter and a speedy recovery to Troy Ave. The movement will not be stopped. #BROOKLYNUNITED #HEARDYOU
