Bobby Shmurda and 12 other members of GS9 were arrested yesterday (Dec. 17) outside Quad Studios in New York City by NYPD. The arrests were a part of a long-term investigation by the agency and the New York Police Department’s newly created Brooklyn South Violence Reduction Task Force that dates back at least to July, if not longer. Kati Cornell, director of public information for New York’s special narcotics prosecutor states that “a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking” were took into account.

XXL has reached out to Epic representatives and Shmurda's lawyer and has not received a response. We will be updating this story as it develops.
