NYC Rapper Chinx Killed, and Another Man Wounded in Queens Shooting.
Lionel Pickens, rapper known by his stage name Chinx, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Queens early Sunday morning.
According to police reports Pickens, 31, and another man were inside a parked car around 4 a.m. on Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood when shots were fired from another car that pulled up along side them.
Both of the men were shot multiple times. Pickens was pronounced dead on arrival at Jamaica Hospital, officials said. The other victim, who is 27, remains at the hospital in critical condition. His identity has not been released.
Pickens, who grew up in Far Rockaway, was a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys group and record label.
No arrests have been made and police have not released any information about suspects. An investigation is ongoing.
It’s sad to report but some low life on Instagram is claiming he is the shooter. This might be a hoax but how terrible is this.
