As the investigation continues into the shooting that happened during T.I.'s concert at Irving Plaza in New York City on Wednesday, May 25, a clearer picture of what happened is starting to emerge.
One person was killed and three were injured, including Brooklyn recording artist Troy Ave, who was shot in the leg.
Police arrested the BSB Records CEO and charged him with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, after releasing video that shows him firing a gun backstage at the venue.
They alleged that he was the lone triggerman and accidentally shot himself.
PIX 11 reports that detectives are now working on a different theory.
According to their report, the 33-year old rapper was approached backstage by someone he had beef with and a fight ensued.
During the scrap Troy and his friend/bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, were shot.

As Troy and his assailant tussled over the gun another shot went off. After that details get sketchy.
McPhatter, 30, died from a wound to the stomach. Christopher Vinson, 34, is recovering from a chest wound and 26-year old model, Maggie Carrie Heckstall, is recovering after surgery to repair damage from a gunshot to her knee.

Troy appeared in court on Monday, May 30, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. He's being held without bail until his trial.
His attorney Scott Leemon said his client was the victim in this case and that McPhatter died saving his life.
"He was shot. He didn't shoot himself, nor his bodyguard/longtime friend who died a hero. The video released by NYPD is only a small sampling. The portion released was selective. What happened before? After? Outside of the frame of that one camera view?" said Leemon.
