Tekashi 6ix9ine implicates himself in robberies and shootings after cops find evidence in confiscated cell phones and surveillance cameras
The Brooklyn native, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested in November in connection with accusations of racketeering that is connected to drugs, shootings, and armed robberies
Federal prosecutors have said that they have more than a dozen pictures and videos that prove the 'Dummy Boy' rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, and his entourage were involved in multiple crimes that included robbery and shooting. The Brooklyn native, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested in November in connection with accusations of racketeering that is connected to drugs, shootings, and armed robberies. If convicted, he faces life behind bars for allegedly running a trafficking operation.
According to NPR, Tekashi 6ix9ine was indicted in a federal court in Manhattan where the prosecutors on the case alleged that he was once a part of the gang known as the Nine Trey Gangstas Bloods. Prosecutors now claim that they even have video proof that the 22-year-old rapper was involved in some of the crimes.
According to TMZ, documents filed allegedly contain pictures of the rapper, his manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan and "other crew members" committing armed robbery and shootings. Authorities reportedly obtained videos from the phones that belong to the star and matched them with some surveillance videos of a robbery in Times Square that was committed on April 3.
The documents allegedly prove that Shotti was the one who caused the robbery and that the "cops believe Tekashi watched from the street and recorded the video".
Another incident that has been listed in the indictment took place on April 21 when Fuguan Lovick, a person associated with the rapper, allegedly shot at one of his rivals inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Prosecutors alleged that on July 16, an innocent bystander was shot dead when one of 6ix9ine's associates aimed at an individual who supposedly disrespected the Nine Trey gang.
The attorneys also filed the documents so that 6ix9ine could be held without bail. The rapper also pleaded guilty to federal racketeering and firearms charges in New York this November. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 22 and the trial is scheduled to take place in September next year.
