Rapper Troy Ave has been arrested after four people — including himself — were shot in a third-floor green room at the venue Irving Plaza Wednesday night, before a T.I. performance.

Troy Ave, 30, whose real name is Roland Collins, allegedly shot himself in the leg during the mele. 1 man is dead and 4 other are injured in the shooting. NYPD officials released new very clear video late Thursday they said shows Troy Ave firing at least one shot inside the venue.

Rapper Troy Ave is being charged with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. According Police the rapper could face additional charges, depending on the results of ballistics tests.

Police aren’t sure if there was more than one shooter in the ordeal, but they suspect Troy Ave shot multiple people. The ballistics evidence will determine that, as well. The NYPD released the video because they are trying to identify the people in the video who were in the room when the shooting happened.

The NYPD said Troy Ave shot himself in the leg during a struggle at the club. After the shooting, they said he left and was driven to NYU Hospital. He was then transferred to Bellevue, where he was arrested.

In the surveillance video above, detectives believe the rapper had already shot himself, as a leg wound is visible in the video and he may be slightly limping as he’s walking.

One man died from his injuries in the shooting.
