BRIARWOOD — The NYPD is renewing efforts to find the suspect responsible for the shooting death of Far Rockaway-raised rapper Chinx in Briarwood in May 2015.

At about 4:04 a.m. on May 17, 2015, police responded to a 911 call of a male, identified as Lionel Pickens, 31, of Ozone Park known as Chinx, shot at the corner of Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive, according to the police.

Upon arrival, police observed two victims with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso, police said.

Pickens, who had multiple gunshot wounds to the torso, was taken by EMS to Jamaica Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, officials said.

The second victim, a 27-year-old man and Pickens’ friend, who had gunshot wounds to his back, was also taken to Jamaica Medical Center where he was in critical condition, police said. He made a full recovery. A police spokeswoman said there is no new information and that the NYPD re-released the case because it was still under investigation.
