NYPD(NEW YORK) — Rapper Roland Collins -- whose stage name is Troy Ave -- has been arrested in connection with the shooting Wednesday night at the NYC venue Webster Hall were rapper T.I. was slated to perform, the NYPD announced Thursday.

Earlier in the day, police released footage of the shooting, that left one dead and two others wounded. Collins also wounded himself.

The NYPD tweeted that Collins, 33, was charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. He has also been charged with reckless endangerment.

Police say Collins is believed to be the only suspect, but they are not ruling out other individuals.

The video footage appears to show Collins come out of a VIP room at Irving Plaza, located near Union Square in lower Manhattan, and fire a shot.

Collins appears to pause and look around the crowd before firing the shot and exiting the screen.

My heartfelt condolences to the family that suffered the loss & my prayers are with all those injured. Respectfully, Tip."
