Darryl Campbell, Rapper Taxstone convicted of manslaughter in shooting of a bodyguard during NY concert
Darryl Campbell – On Thursday, a jury in New York found Darryl Campbell, better known as the rapper and hip-hop podcaster Taxstone, guilty of manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of a bodyguard in 2016 at Irving Plaza. During the course of one of Campbell’s performances, the incident took place.
Taxstone was found to be responsible for the shooting that took the life of Ronald McPhatter and seriously injured three other people, according to the verdict reached by a jury in Manhattan. The incident was described by District Attorney Alvin Bragg as a “tragic and deadly confrontation in a packed New York City music venue.”
The following month, he will be sentenced for the incident that occurred. Prosecutors claim that the shooting happened because of a long-running feud that Taxstone had with Roland Collins, also known as the rapper Troy Ave, who testified against him in the case. McPhatter was Troy Avenue’s bodyguard during their time together.
During the time that shots were being fired, the rapper TI was in the midst of performing. It was planned that Troy Avenue would give a performance.
