Tekashi69 is a known affiliate of a person of interest in the Chief Keef shooting in NYC, TMZ reports.
NYPD investigators told TMZ that one of two men seen on surveillance cameras following Sosa is connected to Tekashi69.
Police say the two suspects followed Sosa the night of the shooting. The first showed up at China Chalet restaurant where Keef was hanging downtown … then jumped into a dark-colored Ford Econovan.
The suspects parked the van around the block from the W and walked to the hotel to wait for Sosa. When Sosa walked outside with a friend to smoke a cigarette, the suspects fired shots in his direction. The suspects fled in the van, which was later found in Brooklyn.
