Another Man Arrested and Charged In Connection to Fetty Wap Shooting and Robbery
New details have emerged in the shooting and robbery case involving Fetty Wap and his entourage.
A second man, Sylvester Huffin, was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder and other offenses for his role in the gun battle that happened outside of a 24-hour deli in Paterson, N.J., according to NorthJersey.com. The 34-year-old man allegedly fired a handgun that wounded two victims outside the deli, according to court documents.
As we previously reported, Fetty Wap had his chain snatched during a skirmish inside the deli last Sunday (March 26). Raheem Thomas (aka “Fuzz") was caught on video pulling out a pistol when he confronted the “Trap Queen” rapper.
Thomas was later arrested and charged with robbery and multiple gun offenses. On Wednesday (March 29), Thomas was hit with an additional charge of armed robbery. Police said in court papers that they found a stolen .45-caliber Springfield handgun in his possession as well as armor-piercing bullets.
According to police, a scuffle broke out between two groups inside the deli when someone snatched Fetty Wap “1738” chain from his neck. Thomas also allegedly pistol-whipped an unidentified man while someone else took the man's backpack.
Authorities said the shooting occurred an hour after the robbery, but didn't provide further details on what happened during the time between the two incidents. In the end, three people were wounded in the shooting with life-threatening injuries.
Fetty Wap was not injured and his crew are not considered suspects at this time. However, Huffin, according to his LinkedIn profile, is the executive manager and A&R rep for Fetty Wap’s label RGF Productions.
Police are looking for a third man, Latwyn A. Thomas, who was charged with robbery. Police said he was the man who pulled a backpack off a man inside the deli while Thomas pistol-whipped the man with a handgun.
Reps for Fetty Wap had no comment on the matter.
