Brooklyn drill rapper 22Gz was arrested on attempted murder charges tied to a March shooting that left three people wounded. 

The 24-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jeffrey Alexander, was detained at John F. Kennedy Airport in Queens on Sunday.

He was on his way to perform at Hot 97’s Summer Jam music festival. 

22Gz is accused of opening fire outside of Club Freeze Cafe & Lounge on Flatbush Ave around 3:30 a.m. on March 6. 

A 21-year-old was struck in the leg, a 31-year-old man was hit in the foot and a 29-year-old was shot in both legs. 

All three victims identified 22Gz as the gunman, according to police. 

Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said:

This shooting not only wounded the victim, but endangered the lives of everyone in a crowded club. 

Senseless gang rivalries fuel much of the gun violence in our communities and I remain committed to vigorously prosecuting anyone who engages in this criminal conduct.

Unfortunately, the rapper is no stranger to criminal charges. 

In 2017, Alexander was arrested in Miami and charged with murder for the killing of 30-year-old Ladarian Phillips during a parking lot dispute. 

But, Sunshine State prosecutors later dropped all of the charges after determining Phillips was shot by someone else. 

A seven-count indictment handed down by a grand jury on Monday charged 22Gz with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, and assault. 

He is set to be released from Rikers Island on a $500,000 bond on Tuesday and will be returning to a home in Georgia, according to his attorney Stacey Richman. 

22Gz is signed to Kodak Black’s record label.
