New York rapper in hospital after being shot in his car

R apper Troy Ave has been shot while sitting in his car at a traffic junction in New York City.

Lawyer Scott Lemon said his client, whose real name is Roland Collins, was on his way to visit his family on Sunday evening when he was shot twice in Brooklyn.

Police said the 31-year-old was in a red Maserati when a man fired several rounds into the car, striking Collins once in the arm and grazing his head.

Collins is in hospital in a fair condition. No arrests have been made.

Collins is free on bail following his May arrest in connection with a fatal shooting inside a popular Manhattan concert venue.

He has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges. He also was shot in that incident.
