Nayson White, 25, and Allen Algarin, 23, were arrested in Georgia and extradited back to the Bronx Wednesday to face charges.

The arrests were announced on Thursday, according to the NY Daily News. The two suspects were originally arrested on a misdemeanor gun possession charge in McDuffie County, Ga., on June 29, police said.

Vontae, real name Avanti Frowner, 27, was attacked and shot multiple times in a Bronx pharmacy by four males who robbed him of his cash and a signature nameplate and chain.

"He look like trouble," a pharmacy employee told NBC, referring to Vontae. "I saw that he had a lot of money. They looked like they [were] fighting or arguing, I don't know. I saw that one of them had a gun. I went back there to the pharmacist screaming, 'We have to move, have to move, because he have a gun, he have a gun!'"

The employee said Vontae begged for his life. "He said, 'Please, please, we can talk, we can talk."

Disturbing surveillance footage shocked viewers and went viral on social media.

On June 23, police arrested River Jones, an 18-year-old college student, and charged him with murder and gun possession.

Police suspect Jones (pictured top right) is the trigger man who shot and killed Vontae senselessly after robbing him.

Two more suspects are still at large, police say.

"They don't need to be on the streets no more – ever!" Vontae's dad, Roger Frowner, 56, told The NY Post. "If they kill somebody in broad daylight, inside of a store, they are treacherous."

The Los Angeles-based rapper who was murdered for his chain in a NYC pharmacy pleaded with the killer to spare his life.

Aspiring drill rapper Moneygang Vontae, who moved from Chicago to L.A., was in the Bronx, NY to scout locations for a music video on Thursday, June 9.

The 27-year-old was gunned down during an armed robbery at the Amazing Community Pharmacy on E. Tremont Avenue around 2 p.m., police say.

A pharmacy employee who witnessed part of the armed robbery said Vontae, real name Avanti Frowner, pleaded with his killer.

The worker, who is seen on surveillance video watching part of the altercation, said she heard Vontae begging for his life. "He said, 'Please, please, we can talk, we can talk," she told NBC New York.

She told NBC New York that the rapper made a purchase earlier that afternoon while at the pharmacy with a friend.

When he returned 20 minutes later, he was approached by two weed dealers who wanted to sell him weed, but he declined.

Four men then followed Vontae inside the pharmacy and a fight ensued before one assailant shot him four times.

"They don't need to be on the streets no more – ever!" Vontae's dad, Roger Frowner, 56, told The NY Post. "If they kill somebody in broad daylight, inside of a store, they are treacherous."

"They made a mistake," Frowner continued. "They did the dumbest thing they could ever do in life. And I hope God will make them pay for it all."

"My son is gone," Roger Frowner said. "He's in another state, and I can't do nothing. So you know, a big-ass hole is in my heart."

Frowner said his son liked "everything that money could buy," and added that he "worked hard" for the jewelry he wore.

"That's all he did with his money, [buy] clothes, cars and jewelry," he told the Post.

"All I wanna say is I'll be glad when this is all over, because the memory will always be there," Frowner added. "You know I want justice for my son. I'm just hurt right now."

Vontae's grieving mother, Andrea Banks, posted about her son's death on Facebook on Thursday.

"They killed my Son MoneyGang Avanti Frowner Wolfpack I'm so heartbroken," she wrote, referring to the name he used on Facebook.

Vontae is the latest drill rapper to die from gun violence. On Friday, Chicago drill legend FBG Cash, 31, was shot 13 times and pronounced dead in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

FBG Cash, real name Tristan Hamilton, was a member of the Chicago "Fly Boy Gang", also called the Clout Boyz or "Tooka gang." The best known FBG member, rapper FBG Duck, born Carlton Weekly, 26, was gunned down in the city's Gold Coast neighborhood in August 2020.
