Man Pleads Guilty Year After Deadly Shooting at TI Show Venue

A hip-hop podcaster has pleaded guilty to gun charges in connection with a fatal shooting at a popular New York concert venue before a T.I. performance.

Daryl Campbell entered the plea Thursday in Manhattan federal court.

The May 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza happened just before T.I. was to perform. A bodyguard of rapper Roland Collins, who performs as Troy Ave, was killed in the shooting. Three other people, including Collins, were wounded.

Campbell is known professionally as Taxstone. He pleaded guilty to two gun charges, admitting illegally possessing a firearm from another state. Authorities say that gun was used to kill Ronald McPatter.

A judge asked him if he used the weapon. He said he did not.

Campbell remains in custody. He faces up to 10 years in prison. No sentencing date was set.
