Two men were arrested on Saturday in a shootout involving the entourage of rapper Tekashi69 in front of a Manhattan restaurant, police said.
Zachary Bunce, of Wyandanch, New York, and Faheem Walter, of Manhattan, were charged with gang assault, New York police said.
The shooting occurred on Friday night when rapper Daniel Hernandez, known as Tekashi69 or 6ix9ine, and a group that included Bunce and Walter were trying to get Philippe Chow on the Upper East Side.
Police said that after they were rejected, the suspects returned and beat a private security guard armed with a chair. They said the guard shot Walter, who was hospitalized with injuries that did not threaten his life.
Hernandez's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, says his client was not present during the shooting.
There was no information available on Saturday about Bunce and Walter's lawyers.
The rapper had been at the restaurant the previous Friday celebrating after probation in a case of child sex in which he was involved.
A judge ordered 6ix9ine to serve four years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service for violating the terms of a plea agreement stemming from his arrest in 2015 for the use of a child in a sexual performance.
After the court, 6ix9ine published a photo of himself in a lawsuit to Instagram with the title "God is good".
He previously pleaded guilty after online videos of his sexual relationship with a minor girl appeared in October 2015. At the time of the incident, Tekashi 6ix9ine was 18 years old, while the victim was 13 years old.
