Troy Ave Shooting
Around 4:20 p.m on December 25, 2016, Troy Ave, the rapper, 31, was apparently sitting inside a red Maserati, at East 91st Street and Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn’s Canarsie section at around 4:20 p.m.
A day after the shooting occurred, Troy Ave was released from the hospital with a bullet still lodged in his head. He posted a video of the aftermath on Instagram, with his blood stains still in the car.
This shooting later led to the arrest of Taxstone in connection to the shooting.
