Alleged Chief Keef Shooter In 6ix9ine Case Pleads Guilty
Earlier this year we learned that Kintea “Kooda B” McKenzie, an associate of Tekashi 6ix9ine, was the alleged shooter who targeted Chief Keef in June 2018 at the W Hotel in NYC.
As of Monday (June 3), Kooda became the eighth defendant to plead guilty in 69’s racketeering case. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years for assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.
Additionally, in January, 6ix9ine admitted that he ordered and paid Kooda $10,000 to carry out the hit. Kooda’s sentencing is set for October 4, 2019.
Furthermore, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman released a statement:
Today [June 3], Kintea McKenzie admitted his responsibility for a brazen shooting in bustling Times Square. In coordination with Tekashi 6ix9ine and other Nine Trey gang members, McKenzie arranged to have another individual shoot at a rival gang member. We continue our daily work with our law enforcement partners to keep our communities safe and to vigorously investigate acts of violence committed by gang members
