Someone is out to kill Ronald “Troy Ave” Collins, as he has become a victim again from the second attempt on his life. The first time he was shot was back in May at Irving Plaza during a shootout at T.I. concert performance. Troy Ave’s long time friend was shot and killed during the same shooting, while Troy escaped with his life, but still suffered a self-inflicted bullet wound to his leg.
Now, just yesterday on Christmas Day, while trying to spend time with his family, Troy Ave had another attempt on his life. Him and his girlfriend was sitting in a car on E. 91st St. and Linden Blvd. in East Flatbush Brooklyn at about 4:20 p.m. on his way to see his family and celebrate the holidays when reportedly a lone gunman let off shots at his Maserati leaving him leaking. Troy was able to drive himself to the hospital.
Fortunately, although Troy Ave was hit multiple times, his attorney has reported that the shots were non-life threatening, as he was shot in the arm and grazed in the head. This cat has nine lives and has been extremely lucky. The motive for the assault is speculative, as no suspects have been identified or arrested.
50 Cent is standing by Troy Ave’s side and has visited him in the hospital. The legendary NY rapper has been by Troy’s side since the Irving Plaza shooting. The two are developing quite the bond. Let’s hope for a speedy recovery for Troy Ave and let’s hope he stays safe on these streets. It’s not a game outchere’.
