Tekashi 6ix9ine kidnapped and robbed by three gunmen, now in hospital

Tekashi 6ix9ine is reportedly in a hospital after being pistol whipped during an armed robbery and kidnapping.

Apparently, after the controversial NY rapper left a video shoot (at 4am) and drove home, he found his driveway blocked and a greeting party of three "hooded gunmen" who knocked him unconscious and dumped him in the back seat of their vehicle. Three gunmen got out of the auto and pistol-whipped Tekashi unconscious. As he was heading home, at around 4 o'clock in the morning, a auto pulled up and blocked his driveway and three people with hoods, holding guns, grabbed the Brooklyn rapper, pistol whipped him and dragged him into their vehicle. The gunmen then pulled up to Tekashi's house as two persons went inside the house while the third kept waiting in the auto along with the rapper in the back seat.

The gunman allegedly threatened to kill him if he didn't give them jewelry and money. They were demanding him to hand over cash and jewelry.

The kidnappers allegedly then drove back to Tekashi's home, with one of the gunman staying with the rapper and two entering the house. Tekashi's partner and daughter were inside the house but were not hurt. The men returned to 6ix9ine's home and two of them went inside with him, while one guarded the vehicle.

The gunman drove away with Hernandez still in the back vehicle, sources tell TMZ, but he was able to jump out and run away. At some point, he was able to jump out of the auto and escape. One of the gunmen began chasing him, but stopped because he was afraid he would be identified.

Tekashi is then said to have flagged down a passing driver, getting into the passenger's seat and begging them to call 911.

He was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where he now remains, as doctors perform various tests, including a CT scan.
