Given all of the social media beef he’s been stirring up lately, 6ix9ine is officially under investigation for being a possible connection to the Chief Keef shooting from earlier this month.
Shots were fired around 6 a.m. on June 2nd outside the W Hotel in Times Square. Thankfully the shooter missed, but a shell casing was found at the scene and ballistics tests are being ran on it, TMZ reports
Also, police are looking for two men who were spotted fleeing the scene.
Law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to see if Tekashi has any connection to the 2 men who shot at Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was in L.A. at the time of the shooting, and cops want to know if he ordered the hit.
NYPD has 2 suspects based on surveillance video, and know they stalked Keef the night of the shooting — first showing up at China Chalet restaurant where Keef was hanging downtown, then jumping into a dark-colored Ford Econovan.
After driving to midtown, the suspects reportedly parked the van around the block from the W and walked to the hotel to wait for Keef.
When the rapper walked outside with a friend to smoke a cig, the suspects pounced. Keef and his friend heard shots and saw a muzzle flash.
The shooters missed, hitting only a nearby sign. We’re told the suspects fled in the van. Cops eventually found it in Brooklyn.
