Taxstone Pleads Guilty To Federal Gun Charges In Irving Plaza Shooting, Faces Up To 20 Years

Taxstone may be going away for a very long time after he pleaded guilty Thursday to two federal weapons counts of possessing a firearm as a felon and receiving a firearm in interstate commerce, the New York Daily News reports.

The charges are from the deadly May 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza that killed rapper Troy Ave’s bodyguard Ronald McPhatter.

Taxstone, whose real name is Daryl Campbell, has not been charged with McPhatter’s death, but the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office told Judge Lorna Schofield that the podcast personality “fired one shot” that killed him.

Taxstone faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

Troy Ave was charged with attempted murder in the shooting. Troy’s DNA was also found on the gun that was used to kill to McPhatter. Troy told prosecutors he wrestled the gun away from Taxstone, and fired back to defend himself.

Taxstone’s sentencing dates was not announced.
