New York, NY – As Tekashi 6ix9ine sits behind bars in a New York prison awaiting trial, three of his known associates were reportedly just indicted for Chief Keef shooting. According to TMZ, Kintea McKenzie, Anthony Ellison and Denard Butler have all been indicted in connection with crimes related to the incarcerated rapper.
McKenzie — also known as Kooda B — was indicted shortly after 6ix9ine spoke with investigators and pointed to McKenzie as the triggerman following the Keef shooting last summer.
6ix9ine allegedly paid McKenzie $10,000 to go after Keef. Last June, McKenzie and another man caught up with Keef outside of the W Hotel in New York City where they opened fire. Luckily for Sosa, they missed.
Although authorities have yet to apprehend McKenzie, Ellison is currently in custody for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting 6ix9ine while Butler was arrested by the ATF on Wednesday (January 30).
Ellison and Butler are expected to appear in court later this afternoon. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York declined to comment on 6ix9ine’s cooperation.
TMZ released video of 6ix9ine allegedly arranging a hit on Keef’s cousin Tadoe last November. In the clip, he offers the person on the phone “a 30 pack” to complete the mission.
6ix9ine is facing six felony charges stemming from his alleged involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. His trial is set for September 4. If convicted on all charges, he faces up to life in prison.
