Shocking details regarding last night's shooting at a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza in downtown NYC have continued to emerge throughout the day. Earlier, it was reported that the one man who has been pronounced dead was an affiliate of Troy Ave's known as B$B Banga and that his killing was a result of a conflict between the respective crews of Troy Ave and Maino, the latter whom had been performing alongside Uncle Murda at the time of the shooting. Surveillance video has now surfaced showing a man whom the NYPD have deemed to be Troy Ave busting into a VIP green room and opening fire.
According to the New York Daily News, Troy has been arrested for reckless endangerment and illegal weapons possession. Troy happened to sustain a gunshot wound to his leg during the incident, reports the Daily News, and apparently he was hit by his own bullet. He was reportedly arrested at NYU Langone Medical Center, where he was being treated for his injuries.
Police told the Daily News that Troy hasn't been charged with murder, as they are awaiting the results of ballistics tests before charging a particular suspect. Earlier today, graphic, first-person footage from the VIP room was obtained by TMZ. Though the shooter cannot be seen, the footage captures the chaotic and horrific nature of the entire incident.
