After almost three years, two suspects have been arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of Chinx Drugz.
The talented Coke Boys artist was killed in a drive-by that remained unsolved until today. 32-year-old Quincy Homere was arrested this morning in New York City and charged with murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon in connection to the 2015 murder. 26-year-old Jamar Hill was also seen leaving the courthouse and was reportedly charged as well.
More details as they become available. RIP Chinx.
UPDATE: New York Daily News reports:
Two Long Island convicts were arrested Thursday in the drive-by slaying of Queens rapper Lionel “Chinx” Pickens, authorities said.
Quincy Homere, 32, and Jamar Hill, 26, were already behind bars on unrelated charges when they were busted in the May 2015 murder of the up-and-coming hip hop star.
“GOD is good and he hears your prayers,” Pickens’ widow Janelli Caceres wrote on Facebook following news of the arrests.
“I’m very relieved that we’re at this point,” she added in a brief interview with the Daily News. “We’ve been waiting for this day for 2 1/2 years.”
