An up-and-coming rapper from Queens was killed in a drive-by shooting in his home borough early Sunday, the NYPD said.
Lionel Pickens, 31, who goes by the stage name Chinx, was shot multiple times, and a 27-year-old passenger in his Porsche was hit twice in the back, at about 4 a.m. at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood, cops said.
The shooter sped off while the rapper’s silver Porsche Panamera 4 rolled for about a block and came to a stop in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts. At least seven bullet holes pierced the front and rear driver-side windows.
Chinx was a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys group and record label. He also issued multiple independently produced mixtapes.
An employee at the Dunkin’ Donuts said Pickens looked lifeless in the driver seat when cops arrived at the scene. “The police came and they opened up the door,” said Bibekanada Das, who was working in the kitchen when the shooting occurred. “All you could see was the guy laid out in the seat.”
