Bobby Shmurda and his GS9 crew were arrested in New York City on Wednesday (Dec. 17) on his possible involvement in gang-related shootings and drug trafficking.
Reports said the arrest comes after a long-term investigation by the NYPD into the GS9 crew. While the indictment is currently sealed, details will be revealed after their arraignments this week.
“These arrests were the result of a long-term investigation,” Kati Cornell, director for NYC’s special narcotics prosecutor, told Wondering Sound. “The investigation did involve a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking.”
Shmurda was under surveillance by police and was arrested after leaving a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall early Wednesday morning. He scheduled to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday (Dec. 18).
His debut EP, Shmurda She Wrote, dropped in November and includes his breakout hit, “Hot N*gga.”
