NEW YORK — Rapper Troy Ave was shot and injured in Brooklyn on Christmas Day.

The rapper was sitting in his red Maserati in the Brooklyn borough of Brownsville when the shooting happened at about 4:20 p.m., according to the New York Post.

He was charged with attempted murder for his alleged role in a gunfight that left his friend dead. He is now suing the venue for poor security.
