Its been about a month and a half since the murder of the Far Rockaway rapper, Chinx and many people still have questions about what went down that night and why. Recently, the NYPD Chief of Detectives, Robert Boyce, was asked about an update on the investigation and they may have a lead!


The death of Chinx definitely touched a lot of people and was especially a tough loss for the city of New York. A promising career, that was about to take off and was cut way too short. As we know, Chinx’s Porsche Panamera was shot at multiple times, hitting Chinx in various places and another victim, Cokeboy Yemen, who survived.

In what definitely seemed like a planned hit, no answers have yet to surface about who committed the senseless murder and why. However, today, Robert Boyce–NYPD’s top detective–may be getting closer to finding out some of the answers that many have.

In a statement to Lisa Evers, Boyce claims that Chinx’s murder may be in connection with a double homicide that took place in Mount Vernon, NY just last week. Many have heard about the unfortunate deaths of 26 year old Kevin Shawn, a former Concordia College Assistant Basketball Coach, and 27 year old Allashun Clay who was a music producer. These two men were targeted while driving in a convertible BMW when they began to take on bullets and their car ultimately flipped.

Two successful young men that were targeted by unknown shooters. It seems that the police maybe connecting the Far Rockaway shooting to the recent Mount. Vernon shooting. Mount Vernon is just outside of the Bronx and is about 30 miles from Far Rockaway, Queens; so, it will definitely be interesting to see exactly what conclusion the NYPD draws from the two events.

Currently, NYPD and Mount Vernon PD are working together on the case to see what connections, if any, can be made. Boyce also says that the crimestoppers hotline has been getting a lot of tips, in which they are finding to be useful. He does not say how close they are in getting closer to finding out committed the murders, however, he does mention that great progress is being made.
