Last month, two men were arrested for allegedly starting a violent confrontation outside of the restaurant where 6ix9ine was celebrating, and now TMZ says the controversial rapper's manager has surrendered to police for his involvement in the non-fatal shooting.
Law enforcement sources close to the situation explain that Tekashi 6ix9ine's manager, who goes by the nickname Shottie, turned himself in to the NYPD Wednesday. Witnesses claim he escalated the violence between 69's entourage and his label head's security, leading to the eventual gunfire. The situation got pretty extreme when some of of the rapper's associates were denied access to the restaurant, with West Coast music executive Elliott Grainge's bodyguards turning the crew away.
Cops believe that Shottie was one of the three from 6ix9ine's crew that instigated the violence, allegedly hitting one of the bodyguards with a chair. Eyewitnesses at the scene also say that Shottie verbally threatened the two bodyguards, saying, "I'm going to violate you both with gunshots." Shottie's attorney previously claimed he had no involvement in the situation, but he's since changed his tune.
The shooting happened when one of the bodyguards saw someone from 69's crew reach for their waistband. Shottie has been charged with gang assault and weapon possession for his involvement in the situation, with the other two involved, Zachary Bunce and Faheem Walter, receiving the same charges when they were arrested last month.
