According to reports, a grand jury found there was enough evidence for the case to proceed, and Assistant District Attorney Christine Keenan filed the certificate with the court on Thursday, saying, “I’m filing a certificate of affirmative grand jury action.”
The charges for which he’s indicted are still sealed, although the Brooklyn rapper, 30, was arrested on attempted murder and weapons possession. Troy’s friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, was killed during the shootout, and his defense attorneys claim Troy was establishing a $10,000 sports scholarship at New Utrecht High School in honor of his best friend.
The indictment comes just days after the jailed rapper released a new mixtape on Monday from Rikers Island, defending his part in the wild gunfight.
Troy is being held without bail and is due back in court on June 22.
