Collins was hospitalized in fair condition. No arrests have been made.
An attorney for Collins said he expected his client to be discharged Monday.
Collins is free on bail following his May arrest in connection with a fatal shooting inside Irving Plaza.
He has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges. He also was shot in that incident.
