6ix9ine's Manager Charged With Gang Assault & Criminal Possession of a Weapon
After his bodyguard was shot the day he was given four years' probation in his 2015 arrest for use of a child in a sexual performance, 6ix9ine was dealt another blow. His manager Shottie -- born Kifano Jordan -- surrendered to police in connection to the shooting, Billboard has confirmed. According to the NYPD, Jordan was charged with gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
On the night of the incident, Oct. 26, 6ix9ine was out celebrating his probation sentence before two members of his team (Zacharty Bunce, 33, and Faheem Walter, 29) allegedly “hit an armed private security guard with chair" since they were denied entry inside an NYC restaurant, NYPD told Billboard. Witnesses told TMZ that Jordan reportedly "escalated" the situation with the security guard, resulting in Walter being shot in the abdomen. They also claim to have heard him say the following to the guards: "I'm going to violate you both with gunshots."
EMS transported Walter to New York Cornell Hospital where he is in stable condition. Walter and Bunce were each charged with gang assault. The investigation is still ongoing and there are no arrests at this time.
6ix9ine's attorney told The Associated Press that his client wasn't anywhere near the shooting.
