The events portrayed in the video preceded the arrest of Tekashi 6ix9ine otherwise known as Daniel Hernandez. He was arrested for racketeering conspiracy as well as 8 other charges to which he's pleaded guilty.
Hernandez is also testifying against fellow gang members Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack who are facing similar charges including racketeering, drug trafficking and firearms offences.
Ellison, in addition to the racketeering and gun charges is also facing charges for the kidnapping of Daniel Hernandez of which footage was released a couple weeks ago.
In this newly released footage of the clash of these two groups show an absurd amount of violence followed by a gun shot. Despite there not being any sound in the video you can clearly see people hitting the ground and then scrambling to safety.
Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman, for the United States Department Of Justice made a statement regarding the violence the Trey Nine gang has spread throughout New York:
"As alleged in the indictment, this gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine, wreaked havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen acts of violence. Showing reckless indifference to others' safety, members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclays Centre, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit."
