Rapper Troy Ave Shot
Troy Ave (real name Roland Collins) has been shot. The 31-year-old rapper was shot while sitting in his car at a Brooklyn intersection. His attorney Scott Lemon says his client was on his way to visit family Sunday evening when he was shot twice.
Police say Collins was in a red Maserati when a man fired several rounds into the car, striking Collins once in the arm and grazing his head. Collins is hospitalized in fair condition. No arrests have been made.
Collins is free on bail following his May arrest in connection with a fatal shooting inside a popular Manhattan concert venue. He has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges. He also was shot in that incident.
Update #2. Rapper 50 Cent visited Troy Ave in the hospital after the incident.
