The hip-hop artist, real name Roland Collins, pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon earlier this month (Jun16) in relation to a fatal shooting incident backstage at T.I.'s Irving Plaza gig in New York on 25 May (16).

On 9 June (16), Collins was indicted in Manhattan Criminal Court, but the specific charges were not made public. However, according to, he has been charged with one count of attempted second degree murder and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

He is due back in court on Wednesday (22Jun16) for arraignment.

Troy was arrested after security footage emerged appearing to show him firing at least one gunshot in the VIP room at the show. He was shot in the leg, while three others were also hit with bullets, including his bodyguard Ronald MCPhatter, who was killed. Troy was denied bail and is currently in custody at Rikers Island prison in New York.

"The video does not show everything nor explain what happened in the VIP room before Troy came running out, as a victim, after he was shot," Collins' attorney, Scott Leemon, tells TMZ.

Leemon will seek bail at the hearing on Wednesday, according to the publication.

Police are still investigating the incident amid reports suggesting the bullet that killed MCPhatter was not from Troy Ave's gun.
