NEW YORK (AP) — A hip-hop podcast host has been arrested in connection with a shooting at a popular New York City concert venue last year that left a rapper's bodyguard dead and two people wounded.

Thirty-one-year-old Daryl Campbell, also known as Taxstone, was charged Monday on a federal weapons possession charge tied to the May 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza in Manhattan just before the rapper T.I. was to perform.

A federal complaint states that DNA supposedly belonging to Campbell was found on the trigger, hand grip and magazine of a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting.

Brooklyn rapper Roland Collins, who performs as Troy Ave, was wounded, along with a friend. Collins' bodyguard was fatally shot.

Campbell, host of the popular podcast Tax Season, was said to be feuding with Collins at the time.

Collins previously pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder charge. His attorney says Collins didn't shoot the bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter.

Phone and email messages left for an attorney believed to be representing Campbell were not immediately returned Tuesday.
