Podcaster Taxstone has been found guilty of manslaughter in the 2016 Irving Plaza shooting, which left Troy Ave's bodyguard and best friend, Ronald "Banga" McPhatter, dead.
According to Pitchfork on Thursday (March 23rd), a jury convicted Tax of first-degree manslaughter, two counts of assault in the first degree, one count of assault in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
District Attorney Alvin Bragg said in a statement, "Daryl Campbell was convicted of killing a man and shooting three others during a tragic and deadly confrontation in a packed New York City music venue. In addition to seriously injuring his rival and killing his rival’s bodyguard, Mr. Campbell shot innocent bystanders and put hundreds of other lives at risk. We will vigorously prosecute anyone who commits this type of deadly violence."
The shooting took place during a T.I. concert.
Taxstone's sentencing is set for April 19.
