6ix9ine, former manager Shottie, Faheem Walter (a.k.a. Crippy), and one other suspect were reportedly taken in by ATF agents in New York City Sunday night. Per a separate Pitchfork report, the fourth suspect is Jensel Butler. All four are now expected to face firearm and racketeering charges following a collaborative investigation from the ATF with assistance from the Department of Homeland Security and the New York City Police Department.
Shottie was previously in the news after turning himself in to police in connection with last month's shooting incident involving one of 6ix9ine's bodyguards.
In an interview with the Breakfast Club last week, 6ix9ine—who was previously entered a plea agreement related to a use of a child in a sexual performance charge—detailed his decision to can much of his team. "There's so much money out there to be stolen, you know what I'm saying?" he said at the time.
Following that interview, MTA Booking—named in 6ix9ine's comments—disputed claims of poaching his profits. The agency is now reportedly considering legal action. Reps for 6ix9ine, however, quickly disputed their dispute in a statement to TMZ.
