The suspect or suspects are still at large and police are on the hunt. So far, the motive is unknown.

The incident went down in the middle of the night Wednesday in Edgewater, New Jersey.”

After the post from Akademiks, Corn or @luhblix pointed out something he noticed in the comment sections from Akademik’s post. Corn took to Twitter to call out 6ix9ine for being an absolute clout goblin, who commented laughing emojis under the Akademiks post. This isn’t the first time 6ix9ine has mocked the critically injured or dead. On top of repeatedly laughing at the expense of dead rappers, there was also a report from Lil Tjay back in 2020 in which he claimed that 6ix9ine’s team tried to pay him to beef with Tekashi— weirdo behavior.

“6ix9ine weird asf for this. Pray for Lil Tjay”

Corn later reported that Tjay made it out of surgery and has been upgraded from critical to stable condition which can be corroborated by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office of New Jersey.

“Tjay is outta surgery and appears to be doing good”

“Update on #BCPONJ@EdgewaterPolice investigation in Edgewater NJ shooting: per initial investigation, does not appear to be random act and one victim upgraded from critical to stable condition. Other admitted to hospital with non-life threatening injuries in good condition.”
