Troy Ave was shot today while on his way to visit his family in Brooklyn.
The New York rapper was reportedly driving in his red Maserati at around 4:20 PM when he was stricken by a bullet on his arm, and another grazed his head, before he crashed his vehicle into a parked car. The incident occurred on E 91st St & Linden Blvd.
The 31-year old MC is currently at Brookdale Hospital, in stable condition. He’s expected to survive his wounds. Troy Ave’s lawyer spoke on the shooting in a statement to Billboard, elaborating on the circumstances.
“Tonight, Troy Ave was targeted again… on Christmas,” his attorney Scott Leemon said, “In Booklyn, going to meet his family for the holiday, he was shot two times. Thankfully, he will survive the second attempt on his life. As we have said from the beginning — he is a victim. We pray for his speedy recovery.”
