NEW YORK - (AP) - A Brooklyn rapper is being held without bail in connection with last week's fatal shooting at a popular Manhattan concert venue.
    
Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, appeared in court in a wheelchair on Monday evening.
    
The gunfire erupted Wednesday night in a green room at Irving Plaza, just before the rapper T.I. was to perform.
    
One of Collins' bodyguards, Ronald McPhatter, was killed. Three other people, including Collins, were wounded.
    
Attorney Scott E. Leemon says Collins, who's charged with attempted murder, did not shoot McPhatter or himself.
    
He says McPhatter "died a hero" trying to protect Collins.
