Following his arrest in Texas last month, it has been reported that popular hip hop podcaster Taxstone has been indicted on weapons charges in connection with a deadly shooting at a T.I. concert last may that left Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave wounded and his best friend shot dead.

According to VladTV, a federal grand jury found enough evidence to indict Taxstone on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and receiving a gun through interstate commerce.

With Taxstone having plead guilty to attempted robbery in 2008, he is prevented from having possession of a firearm of any kind.

However, according to authorities, Taxstone illegally possessed a 9-milimeter Kel-Tec semiautomatic handgun, which was allegedly used at the T.I. concert that killed Troy Ave’s friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter.

Taxstone can face a maximum sentence of 10 years for each of the two charges.
