NYPD Commissioner James O'neill said that he believes that the two suspects followed Chinx, and a friend in a night club of Brooklyn in Queens, on May 17, 2015. While Chinx and his passenger were stopped at a traffic light on Main Street and Queens Boulevard, Hill and Homer stopped in his vehicle and, apparently, he opened fire on Chinx Porsche.
The 31-year-old Coke Boy affiliate suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the hospital. His friend was wounded, but survived.
Queens District attorney Richard Brown said the murder was "another example of mindless gun violence that affect our country", and described Chinx as "a young and promising musician" who "had his life and career dramatically interrupted by a burst of senseless shooting ... violence has no place in a civilized society."
If convicted, Homer and Hill face up to life in prison.
Chinx was working on his debut album, Welcome TO JFK, at the time of his death, but was published posthumously. A second posthumous project, Legends Never Die, was released in 2016.
