Mr. Homere and Mr. Hill were each charged with murder, attempted murder, assault and two counts of possession of a weapon.

Late rapper Chinx, who died two years ago in a drive-by shooting, may finally receive justice for his murder.

A weapon was then fired into Pickens' Porsche.

Homere covered his face as cops hauled him in, with photographers asking him questions along the way. However, there has been no word on the motive or how police linked the two to the case. According to NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill, Hill and Homere stalked Pickens and his passenger, shooting 15 bullets in their auto while it was stopped at a red light on Queens Boulevard.

Relatives of the Pickens had previously told The Post they believe the killing was carried out by a rival from Far Rockaway.


Chinx was best known as a member of French Montana's Coke Boys.

Officials say that a Queens County jury returned a five-count indictment Thursday, charging 26-year-old Jamar Hill, of Valley Stream, and 32-year-old Quincy Homere, of Baldwin, with the fatal shooting of Pickens and the wounding of 27-year-old Antar Alziadi as they sat in the musician's vehicle in Briarwood, Queens. In 2013, Chinx and Montana released the first single from Chinx's EP entitled, "Feelings".

The reported suspects come as great news, as the rapper would've celebrated his birthday on December 4.

"I wish a slow torturous death on whoever did this to my baby", Pickens' wife Janelli Caceres wrote on Facebook at the time. One song of theirs, "Off the Rip", became hugely popular soon after Mr. Pickens's death.
