According to TMZ, sources claimed three hooded gunmen got out of their vehicle, grabbed Tekashi and knocked him unconscious. Two of the gunmen headed into the house, while 6ix 9ine's daughter and baby mother were in the house.

At one point, the auto returned to Tekashi's home, where two gunmen got out and allegedly stole more than $750,000 in jewelry, and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash. We're told the gunmen then drove away with Tekashi still in the back seat. Eventually, he was able to free himself by opening one of the doors in the back and jumping out. One of the gunmen began chasing him but got scared and retreated because he was afraid he'd be ID'd.

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