Troy Ave Released From Jail on $500,000 Bond
Troy Ave, who has been in police custody since the day after the May 25 shooting at Irving Plaza that left one man dead and three others, including Troy, injured, was released on $500,000 bond Monday morning (July 11). Troy, real name Roland Collins, has been indicted on attempted murder and criminal weapons possession charges and has been held without bail until Monday’s hearing.
According to the New York Daily news, the bond was secured against Troy’s mother’s home in Brooklyn and terms of his release demand he wear an ankle monitor, remain within New York City and stay away from bars, venues, concert halls and other performance spaces while the investigation continues.
Troy was arrested May 26 after the NYPD released an 11-second security camera video showing a man police identified as the rapper emerge from a backstage room at Manhattan’s Irving Plaza to a balcony, blood on his leg, and fire a gun in the direction of people fleeing. Police later found a gun that matched the ballistics taken from the scene in a “secret compartment” in Troy’s car, which had driven him to NYU Langone Hospital following the shooting.
