A man with ties to the rap world was arrested after a standoff in a Canarsie, Brooklyn New York neighborhood yesterday.
Tyran "Tah Tah" Moore, 32, was arrested yesterday after a standoff with police.
He was charged with the shooting of Capt. Kenneth Girven in Harlem. Girven was shot in the stomach, just below his bulletproof vest.
According to police reports, the 34-year-old Girven was working in plainclothes and driving alone in an unmarked police car on 154th street.
He told authorities he saw two suspicious men and approached them. He identified himself as a police officer and asked "What's up?"
A man popped out from behind an SUV and shot at Girven three times, hitting him once. Girven was conscious and radioed for backup.
"They really won't leave those Murder Inc. boys alone," a source speaking on the condition on anonymity told AllHipHop.com. "Tah Tah knew Preme, but his relationship with Preme and Murder Inc. is being exaggerated. Preme wasn't into robbery."
The source said that Tah Tah's connection aren't through Murder Inc. as reported, but through Onyx rapper and actor Fredro Starr and Pepa from the best-selling female group, Salt-N-Pepa.
"He was with Fredro Starr almost everywhere he went when he wasn't out robbing people. That dude would go through some serious paper. He blows it all on balling and then looks for his next lick."
Moore has been convicted in Queens and Brooklyn for weapons possession, drug dealing and vehicular manslaughter. He was acquitted of second-degree murder in 1993.
Moore is also the father of a child, Tyran, Jr., by Pepa.
In 50 Cent's song "F*ck You," he raises the possibility that Tah Tah was the gunman who shot him 9 times.
"50, who shot ya/think it was Preme, Freeze or Tah, Tah?"
"It wasn't any of those dudes that shot 50," the source said. "It was a dude named Hommo...and he's dead."
Moore has not been charged with any crime as authorities are seeking to determine if he was the triggerman or not.
He has sought the legal counsel of pricey New York attorney, Marvin Kornberg.
Moore told police he was gambling at the time of the shooting and according to reports, his story has checked out, leaving the gunman at large.
Moore was also looked into regarding the murder of Jam Master Jay, because of his height and build.
