On Tuesday morning, a group of men attacked a rapper at LA Fitness in Lake Worth, Florida and left him with serious injuries. According to TMZ, Hernandez - real name Daniel Hernandez - was ambushed by three or four people while using the sauna.

The 26-year-old rapper is well known for his troubled past. In 2019, he was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to racketeering and other offenses; following this, he agreed to testify against his former gangmates on behalf of the government.

At that time, he was labeled a snitch for helping prosecutors take down members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, who faced decades in prison for their crimes.

His trial had an impact on the jury, leading to a verdict against his former gang. Ultimately, he served only two years in jail.

He was released in August 2020, despite threats of retribution from his former gang. Subsequently, he was able to resume his professional career.

On March 21, 2016, Tekashi 6ix9ine was assaulted again outside an LA Fitness in Florida. The incident left him with bruises on his face, a black-and-blue eye, as well as injuries to his jaw and ribs.

TMZ has released video footage of the attack that shows two men ordering Tekashi to "shut the f-kup" as they kick him in the stomach and punch him in the head. Although Tekashi attempts to fight off his attackers, they retaliate by beating him up.

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was brutally assaulted Tuesday at LA Fitness in Florida, according to video that went viral. The attack took place inside a bathroom and was recorded for all to see.

The video showed two men towering over Tekashi 6ix9ine as they beat him. One kicked his stomach and slammed his head against the floor; while the other did the same to his head.

According to Florida Department of Law Enforcement, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine had to be taken directly to the hospital due to his critical condition.

On Friday afternoon, another man was arrested in connection with the shooting and accused of assaulting a woman. He was taken into custody and is currently in jail.

Daniel Morgado, a 15-year-old student, told NBC 6 that Sanchez was at the gym with his boyfriend when the fight began. The teenager claims the boyfriend told him to stop looking at other people and that's when Sanchez responded with an instruction to respect him - at which point things got heated.

Morgado reported seeing the boy grab a knife and start to yell. He expressed fear for his friend's safety, so he sought assistance.

He reported that the boy's girlfriend, who was also at the gym, intervened and tried to soothe him. The boyfriend wanted to go back in to investigate what was going on.

But the boy's girlfriend became alarmed and screamed at him, so they eventually fled outside. With the girl leading them away, the boy followed closely behind.

The couple was confronted by multiple police officers. Arrested and taken to Palm Beach County Jail, they faced serious legal repercussions for their actions.

Delmas is being represented by the Palm Beach County Public Defender's Office. Per PD policy, they do not comment on active cases.

At present, several law enforcement agencies are actively investigating the incident. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Miami-Dade County Sheriff's Office and Broward County Sheriff's Office are all working on it.

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s attorney said

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose testimony helped convict two high-ranking members of his gang, was attacked at an LA Fitness in Florida on Tuesday night. The attack left the rapper, also known as Daniel Hernandez, with several injuries and sent him to a hospital. According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday afternoon, an "altercation" between several individuals caused the attack.

Variety magazine reported that video evidence of the attack was captured on cell phone video. It shows a group of men jumping Tekashi 6ix9ine, who was alone inside the gym. They threw punches and kicks which injured his face; he was later taken to a local hospital where his injuries weren't considered life-threatening.

Attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ his client had been assaulted while in the sauna at LA Fitness in Lake Worth, Fla. He suffered cuts to his face and bruises as a result of the assault, according to Lazzaro.

Tekashi 6ix9ine has a history of violence, and this incident isn't the first time he's been hurt. He's been ejected from Miami baseball stadiums for being drunk and causing disturbances, plus last year he was arrested for domestic violence.

He testified against his gang members in a 2019 federal trial that resulted in long prison terms for them. He was sentenced to two years behind bars on multiple counts of racketeering, firearms and drug trafficking charges.

It remains uncertain why he was attacked at the gym, though it could have something to do with his cooperation with prosecutors. Additionally, he has been accused of using a girl for performing a sex act which is considered a felony in Florida.

According to a social media post from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to the gym after an altercation occurred. The sheriff's office is now actively investigating what transpired.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone who may have witnessed the attack to contact them at 1-800-458-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will match tipsters with a case agent.

According to a spokesperson for the Palm Beach County sheriff's office, WPTV West Palm Beach reported that the rapper had been attacked at his gym and employees heard men hitting him. He was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the sheriff's office tweeted.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is renowned for his hardcore music style and the violence it often incorporates. He developed this persona growing up in South Bronx, NY where gangs are prevalent; his father died when he was 13 years old, and growing up amid this environment helped shape him into who he is today.

His music has rocketed to the top of the charts and earned him millions of followers on Instagram. However, 6ix9ine has also made headlines for testifying against gang members. Despite his success, 6ix9ine has been involved in controversy for some time, having feuds with celebrities and getting kicked out of places due to his behavior.

In 2019, he was found guilty of racketeering and drug trafficking charges but released early from prison after agreeing to testify against other Nine Trey Gangsters associates. He received a two-year sentence for these offenses with the possibility of a reduced punishment if he agreed to serve the remainder of his time under home arrest.
