Tekashi 6ix9ine Bodyguard Shot In Shootout At Restaurant

Tekashi 6ix9ine bodyguards

One of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s bodyguards was shot during a shooting incident involving the rapper.

Tekashi69 was celebrating his big victory in court today where he was given probation for his sexual assault case. The Brooklyn rapper and his crew hit up a restaurant in New York City, moments after leaving court to celebrate the legal victory and that’s when things took a turn for the worst. TMZ reported that Tekashi 6ix9ine was meeting a 10k Projects Records exec at the restaurant and when he and his bodyguard turned up, that’s when he was told that he’s the only one allowed inside and his guards have to stay outside.

An argument developed between his bodyguards and the other guards, and it turned heated. One of 6ix9ine’s bodyguards was shot in his stomach in the melee. The bodyguard is currently getting treatment at a local hospital.

Tekashi69 was not hurt in the incident, but while he was in court for his sentencing, the judge told him to stay out of trouble, or he could be sent to prison. NYPD is currently investigating the incident, but so far no charges have been filed.

Earlier this week, Urban Islandz reported that Tekashi 6ix9ine hired two of Floyd Mayweather’s ex-bodyguards to beef up his security. It now appears that he has good reasons to want to beef up security.
