The three suspects, identified as Rafael Medina Jr, 43; Octavious Medina, 23; and Anthony Maldonado, 25; “They have been located, arrested and are currently being booked/processed at the Palm Beach County Jail,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
In this altercation at an LA Fitness gym, rapper Daniel Hernandez, known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, suffered injuries and was taken to a hospital. Hernandez’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, told CNN in a statement that the rapper “was attacked in a gym sauna by three or four ruffians who beat him (he tried to defend himself).”
CNN has not determined if the suspects have retained an attorney at this time.
