Men indicted in Queens rapper Chinx's shooting death in 2015, DA says

Two men have been arrested in the 2015 drive-by shooting death of Lionel Pickens a New York City rapper who

Chinx, who was born and raised in Far Rockaway, was fatally wounded, having been shot 15 times.

After two and a half years, the NYPD have found the people they believe are responsible for killing Queens rapper Chinx Drugz.

According to District Attorney Richard Brown, 32-year-old Baldwin man Quincy Homere and 26-year-old Valley Stream resident Jamar Hill were arrested Thursday morning and will be charged with second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Homere was behind bars on federal charges and Hill on state, sources said.

Hill and Homere followed Pickens from the Red Wolf nightclub in Brooklyn - where he had just performed - into Queens before opening fire from a auto on the rapper's 2015 Porsche Panamera 4 in the vicinity of Main Street and Queens Boulevard, the district attorney said. Pickens, and his friend, Antar Alziadi, were both struck multiple times.

The shooters sped off after the attack, and the NYPD offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to their arrest.
