The man killed in the shooting at Irving Plaza last night (May 25) was Troy Ave's BSB affiliate Banga.
The New York Police Department reported that a 33-year-old man was shot at the New York venue where Atlanta rapper T.I. was headlining a show. He was brought to Beth Israel Hospital on Manhattan's Lower East Side, where he was later pronounced dead. Another man and a woman were also shot in the incident and hospitalized. Troy Ave's leg was reportedly grazed by a bullet, sending him to hospital.
Banga was the CEO and head trainer at Big Bizz Fitness in Brooklyn, and a long-time supporter and friend of Troy Ave's, even linking to Ave's projects in his Twitter and Instagram bios.
