Coke Boys Rapper Chinx Killed In QUEENS

One person was killed and another wounded early Sunday after someone opened fire on a car in Queens.

Police are hunting for the gunman who shot and killed a Queens-born rapper in his car early Sunday.

31-year old Lionel Pickens died after being shot multiple times in the chest in the Briarwood section.

His widow Janelli Pickens spoke exclusively to Eyewitness News Monday. The couple, who were married eight years, grew up together in Far Rockaway and had two daughters, ages 14 and 11, and a 4-year old son.

“It is a hard time, we are going through a lot,” Janelli Pickens said. “It’s a very devastating situation, his kids are greatly affected by all this. They don’t quite understand, but it will hit them soon. For his son, who doesn’t understand why God’s angels have come and taken his father, he just wants to know when he’s going to bring him back, and it’s hard, it’s very hard. A lot of people don’t understand that this was his life, was his family.”

She said she was supposed to go out with him Saturday night and would have been in the car when he was shot, but instead stayed home because he was tired.

Pickens had just performed at a Brooklyn nightclub Saturday night and was going to a bar with a 27-year old man but got there after it was closed.

He was driving his friend to a nearby subway station in Queens when the deadly encounter took place on Queens Boulevard.

At 4:04 a.m., police say another car drove up, and a gunman opened fire, striking Pickens at least eight times.
