The whole Irving Plaza situation is a messy one. Things got a little bit heated and bullets started flying. 31-year-old rapper Troy Ave ended up being right in the middle of things, and he was injured while his bodyguard was left dead. At first, people were convinced that Troy was responsible for his bodyguard’s death, but details are coming out that seem to make things even clearer. Podcast personality Taxstone was at the location when it all went down, and he’s the one being indicted for murder.
Taxstone was arrested earlier in January of this year for a number of different weapon charges that were connected to the Irving Plaza shooting back in 2016. The shooting left rapper Troy Ave wounded and his bodyguard Ronald McPhatter dead.
McPhatter’s family has been extremely upset about the situation since it unfolded, and rightfully so.
His family and plenty of others ended up wondering why murder charges were never actually brought against Tax, but on Thursday July 13, he was officially indicted for murder.
DNA Info reported that Darryl “Taxstone” Campbell has officially been charged with second degree murder for the shooting of McPhatter.
The shooting took place back on May 25th, 2016. In the hearing on Thursday, Taxstone pleaded not guilty.
Attorney Hagan Scotten has called out Taxstone over and over again while claiming that he was the person who shot and killed McPhatter.
However, the charges took a while to come in.
