Hip-hop podcast star Taxstone has been arrested in connection to a shooting inside New York's Irving Plaza last year that left rapper Troy Ave shot and his bodyguard dead.

Taxstone, born Daryl Campbell, was arrested Monday without incident. Authorities tell REVOLT charges against the 31-year-old are still pending.

On May 25, 2016, shots rang out inside Irving Plaza’s V.I.P. area before T.I., who was the night's headliner, was set to perform. The incident left Ronald McPhatter, 33, dead and three others injured, including rapper Troy Ave.

Ave, born Roland Collins, was later arrested and charged with attempted murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon for his alleged involvement in the shooting. However, officials in August said that an additional shooter was still being sought for injuring the rapper and killing his bodyguard.

As of this writing, Campbell remains in custody in Manhattan. He is currently being processed and set to be taken into Central Booking.
