In Rap Trial of Taxstone for Troy Ave Shooting & McFatter Murder Has Gun Print Stipulations

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 6 – The rapper Taxstone, Darryl Campbell, is on trial for the May 25, 2016 murder of Ronald McFatter and shooting of rapper Troy Ave, Roland Collins. 

 On March 6, 2023, Inner City Press again went to cover the trial in 111 Centre Street, before Judge Abraham Clott.

  Evidence was entered about the guns recovered in Irving Plaza, which were in turn given operability tests. There was the bullet removed from Roland Collins legs - and, strangely, the cataloguing of boxer shorts and white T-shirts. Much of this came up in stipulations agreed to by the defense, testimony of retired NYPD detectives.

Passed 4 pm Judge Clott called it a day and let the jury go. Then he held a whispered sidebar with the lawyers previewing arguments about "the Rikers calls." Subsequent Baxter Street stand-up video here.

 After the jury left Taxstone was handcuffed behind his back and led out.

 He has a Federal case as well, which Inner City Press is also covering
