BRIARWOOD (WABC) — A Queens-born rapper was killed and another person wounded early Sunday after someone opened fire on a car in Queens.

The victim, shot multiple times in the torso, has been identified as 31-year old Lionel Pickens of Ozone Park, known as Chinx.

It happened just after 4 a.m. at Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood.

Police say the victims were driving a Porsche westbound on Queens Boulevard when a second vehicle pulled up to them at 84th Road, where a gunman from the second vehicle fired multiple rounds inside the first car, striking the driver and the other person.

The wounded person is in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital.

Investigators are on the scene searching for any clues that could lead to the shooter.

So far police have no motive.

In a statement, the Legion Media Group said:
“It is with a heavy heart that The Legion Media Group and 4 Kings Management announce the passing of Lionel “Chinx” Pickens this morning. He was 31. Few details are available about his passing but his management confirmed his passing this morning. The rapper from Queens, New York was a member of French Montana’s Coke Boys. Chinx’s dedication, humor and vision will always be remembered “Chinx was one of the most talented, professional, and determined rappers this industry had to offer,” said Publicist Chanel Rae, “Further more, he was a friend.”

Last night, prior to the 4:00 a.m. incident, Chinx was hosting an event in Brooklyn at Red Wolf night club, according to his Instagram account, where he posted an image of himself two hours before his life was taken.

The hip-hop community is reacting with a mix of shock and sadness.
