( 4UMF NEWS ) Troy Ave’s Court Date Postponed:
Troy Ave’s court date on Centre St. was postponed Saturday as the rapper-turned-gunman remained in the hospital, nursing a self-inflicted gunshot wound suffered during a shooting at Irving Plaza.
Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, 33, was undergoing surgery to have bone fragments removed from his leg.
He is facing attempted murder and weapons possession charges after he was caught on video opening fire backstage during a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza Wednesday night.
Ronald McPhatter, 30, was fatally shot and two other people were wounded as Collins fired off five shots, officials said. Collins also shot himself in the leg.
Collins remained in NYU Langone Medical Center Saturday, handcuffed to a bed and under a police guard.
Charges are expected to be upgraded to murder once ballistic tests are finalized, officials said.
