These 24 hours have just been a whirlwind of news reports about the events that transpired last night at the T.I. and Friends show at Irving Plaza.
Brooklyn rapper, Troy Ave has just been arrested in connection with the deadly shootings that took place last night at the venue. Last night’s events left 2 people wounded and one man dead, BSB affiliate and Troy Ave’s bodyguard, Banga (real name Ronald Edgar McPhatter) has been pronounced dead. Troy Ave also shot himself, and is now being suspected of shooting his own leg. Security surveillance video has surfaced of what appears to be Troy Ave re-entering the venue and firing a shot. The New York Daily News is reporting that Cops are stating Troy Ave is a murder suspect and are speculating he may have killed his own bodyguard. All of these reports are like something out of a bad action movie. A man lost his life and it was all probably over nothing at all. T.I. has broken his silence and took to social media to express his sympathy for the unfortunate events. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
