Rapper Troy Ave Shot Twice In New York City
Rapper Troy Ave was shot twice in his car in Brooklyn on Sunday.
Police reported that The shooting unfolded in Canarsie at East 91st Street and Linden Blvd at around 4:20 p.m.
The bullets grazed the rapper’s head and struck him once in the arm as he sat in his Maserati sports car with his girlfriend, sources said. He was on his way to visit family.
A CT scan on Monday showed one bullet still in his head, his lawyer John Stella said. “They are discharging him today,” he said. “He is very sore. The doctors told the family that he came dangerously close to having a spinal cord injury, but it looks like there’s no lasting damage from the wound track.”
His shooter walked up and opened fire without warning — blasting out the driver-side window, cops said. A good Samaritan took him to Brookdale Hospital.
After he heard the news, rapper 50 Cent visited Ave in the hospital and posted a photo on Instagram. Thousands of fans expressed good wishes and support as well.
