Two Long Island men have been charged with the murder of Ozone Park rapper Chinx (Lionel Pickens), 31, who was fatally shot in Briarwood in May 2015.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced on Dec. 14 that Jamar Hill, 26, and Quincy Homere, 32, were charged with one count each of second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. If convicted, they each face up to 25 years to life in prison.

According to charges, at 4:04 a.m. on May 17, 2015, Hill and Homere followed Pickens from Brooklyn to Queens after Pickens performed at a nightclub. Hills and Homere fired a weapon at Pickens’ Porsche near Main Street and Queens Boulevard, striking Pickens and his passenger, 27-year-old Antar Alziadi, multiple times.

Officers from the 107th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Both men were rushed to Jamaica where Pickens was pronounced dead and Alziadi was treated for his injuries.

“In another example of the mindless gun violence plaguing our country, a young, up-and-coming musician had his life and career dramatically cut short by a burst of senseless shooting that also wounded an acquaintance,” Brown said. “Such violence has no place in a civilized society.”
