Authorities have yet to find a motive for the shooting, but Chinx’s family members reportedly believe he was killed by a rival. 

The native New Yorker, born Lionel Pickens, was gunned down in Queens, NY, in May. Chinx was sitting in his car with a friend when another vehicle pulled up and began shooting, police said. He was hit 15 times, and the friend was shot as well, although the injuries were not fatal.
