Cops release video of rapper murder suspects in NYC


Cops have released new surveillance of five men wanted in connection with the Bronx broad daylight murder of Los Angeles drill rapper Avanti Frowner.

Frowner, 27, was inside Amazing Pharmacy on East Tremont Avenue near Arthur Avenue at around 3.45pm Thursday when he was shot multiple times in the body and chest, police said.

Four men wanted by cops are captured in video released Friday night, and the fifth is shown in surveillance footage.

Frowner, whose stage name is Money Gang Vontae, is a drill rapper from Los Angeles who previously lived in Chicago. He was in town for a show, according to law enforcement sources and his father.

Disturbing footage obtained by the Post Friday shows four of the suspects grappling with Frowner before a man fires at least four shots.

The group then ran, leaving the helpless victim sprawled behind the counter with a blood-soaked shirt.

The suspects fled with the chain and the victim’s money, sources said.

Frowner was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The latest photo posted to Money Gang Vontae’s official Instagram account shows the rapper standing outside a Bronx bodega.

“I got into the habit of counting so much money that I got paper cuts!!” he wrote.

The rapper’s father, Roger Frowner, 56, said the suspects ‘don’t need to be on the streets anymore – ever again!’

“If they kill someone in broad daylight, inside a store, they are traitors,” he said. “They made a mistake. They did the dumbest thing they could ever do in life. And I hope God will make them pay for it.
