NY hip-hop personality Taxstone arrested in connection with fatal Irving Plaza shooting
Taxstone, born Daryl Campbell, 31, was arrested at his home on Alabama Avenue in Brooklyn Monday. Sources initially provided a different location.
The Brooklyn-born artist, known for his Tax Season podcast, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Campbell will be arraigned in federal court.
Shots rang out in Irving Plaza’s V.I.P. area before T.I. was set to perform on May 25, resulting in the death of Ronald McPhatter, a 33-year-old man part of Ave’s entourage.
Two other men, including Ave, and a woman were also injured.
Ave was later arrested and charged with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon for his alleged involvement.
But officials in August said an additional shooter who is suspected of injuring the rapper and killing his bodyguard was still being sought.
Ave, a Brooklyn-born performer whose real name is Roland Collins, was released on $500,000 bond in July. The following month his lawyer announced he is suing Irving Plaza for poor security and allowing a gun to get inside the venue.
