Coke Boys/Riot Squad member Chinx Drugz has reportedly been shot and killed in Queens, New York during a botched car j****** on Sunday, May 17, around 4 in the morning.
The rapper was sitting in his new Porsche Panamera when assailants approached and attempted to steal it. Chinx tried to pull away, but the would-be car thieves opened fire. His was struck by five bullets.
A Queens-born rapper was killed and another person wounded early Sunday after someone opened fire on a car in Queens.
The victim, shot multiple times in the torso, has been identified as 31-year old Lionel Pickens of Ozone Park, known as Chinx.
It happened just after 4 a.m. at Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood.
Police say the victims were driving a Porsche westbound on Queens Boulevard when a second vehicle pulled up to them at 84th Road, where a gunman from the second vehicle fired multiple rounds inside the first car, striking the driver and the other person.
The wounded person is in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital.
Investigators are on the scene searching for any clues that could lead to the shooter.
So far police have no motive.
Chinx got his start with late Far Rockaway, Queens emcee Stack Bundles, as a part of the Riot Squad, along with Bynoe and Cau2G$.
He later joined French Montana’s Coke Boys team and was building steady momentum with songs like “Dope House” featuring Jadakiss.
Chinx’s last full length release was the well received mixtape entitled Cocaine Riot 5.
