Bobby Shmurda was arrested today following a long-term investigation by the NYPD for his suspected involvement in gang-related shootings and drug trafficking in NYC, according to the New York Daily News.
Bobby, Rowdy Rebel and members of the GS9 crew were arrested following a recording session at Quad Studios. Full details of Bobby’s case won’t be revealed until Thursday when the sealed indictment will be opened in Manhattan Supreme Court, according to Billboard. NYPD will reportedly hold a press conference tomorrow to discuss the “Hot N*gga” rapper’s charges.
The newly signed Epic Records artist was arrested this past summer after police found him in possession of firearm, according to court documents obtained by the New York Post.
Bobby was allegedly spotted by police brandishing a firearm at his Brownsville apartment on June 3. He was arrested after trying to stash the weapon in a couch. He was later reportedly released on $10,000 bail.
Bobby was subsequently charged with felony criminal possession of weapon, which carries a maximum of 15 years in prison.
Members of Bobby’s GS9 camp were involved in an October shooting that sparked mass chaos at Fat Tuesday’s nightclub in Miami Beach. The alleged gunmen were driving a black Infiniti when they fired several shots at rivals.
Police were able to nab two suspects that included Alex Crandon, 20, of Brooklyn, NY; and Dimitri Mara Bastien, 22, of Bayshore, NY. According to a police report, Crandon was arrested for driving with a suspended license and Bastien was arrested for marijuana possession and possession of counterfeit currency.
Crandon and Bastien were not charged with the shooting.
Miami Beach Police Officers say the shooting incident was a retaliation shooting for a murder that occurred in Brooklyn, NY about four to five years ago, 7 News of Miami reports.
