Troy Ave has filed a lawsuit against New York City concert venue Irving Plaza, in which he blames poor security for a gunfight at T.I. concert in May that left his friend dead. He believes that the company is at fault for not having stricter measures in place to stop people from bringing weapons inside, and says that these policies directly led to the shooting he was involved in.
Troy and his lawyer appeared in front of the venue Monday morning for a press conference, where they denounced the venue for not properly searching people who came in through the back door.
“The security here did not pat down anyone who came in the back door,” his lawyer claimed. “That’s the problem here. The people who came in through the VIP entrance in the back were not checked by security… That’s how the gun got in.”
Troy Ave is currently free on $500,000 bail. He is forbidden from visiting clubs, bars, arenas, and stadiums,
