In January, three associates of 6ix9ine were indicted on criminal charges related to the attempted shooting of Chief Keef in New York City in June 2018. 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to ordering the shooting among other crimes, and now it's been revealed the "Gummo" rapper told authorities his associate Kintea "Kooda B" McKenzie was the one pulling the trigger.
In court documents obtained by Complex, it's been revealed that 6ix9ine confirmed that he offered Kooda $20,000 to shoot at Chief Keef. The shooting took place on June 2, 2018 outside the W Hotel in New York City. 6ix9ine and manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan met with Kooda to pay him, although he reportedly accepted half of the initial offer and settled for $10,000 as payment for the shooting.
6ix9ine told investigators that Kooda was the shooter last month, although he initially denied any involvement in the incident. Before admitting that he was involved in ordering the shooting on Keef, 6ix9ine implicated himself in the shooting when a video of him talking to Keef's cousin Tadoe surfaced online. In the video, 6ix9ine said that he had a $30,000 payment to harm Tadoe. "I swear to God I got a 30 pack," he continued.
McKenzie, 21, was at large when his name was first added to the indictment on Jan. 31. He was later arrested on Feb. 8. He is currently facing a maximum sentence of life in prison, with a mandatory minimum of ten years behind bars. He has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of a racketeering conspiracy. Thankfully, no one was injured in the shooting.
As previously reported, 6ix9ine is "cooperating against multiple violent people."
