In Chief Keef Shooting
6/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
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, but we’re told cops want to know if he ordered the hit.
We’re told 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, we’re told the suspects 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.
As we reported … the shooters missed, hitting only a nearby sign. We’re told the suspects fled in the van. Cops eventually found it in Brooklyn.
Tekashi’s denied any involvement. We reached out to NYPD for official comment. So far … no word back.
