Sun God, real name Dennis Ames, 27 — the son of Wu-Tang Clan founding member Ghostface Killah — was busted this weekend in two separate gun cases, one dating back to 2013.
Ames, 27, who is also an affiliate of the globally renowned rap collective, was arrested busted Friday, as detectives were executing a warrant on his Clifton apartment. Police say he’s affiliated with the Komrad Militant Bloods gang.
The first gun case against Ames stems from an Oct. 30, 2013, incident: Police officers were conducting a floor-by-floor “vertical patrol” of 225 Park Hill Ave. and came upon Ames and several other people in a stairwell, according to a law enforcement source.
He was carrying a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson handgun, and when the officers came upon him, he ditched it and ran, authorities allege. Police tested the gun and found Ames’ DNA on it, and a review of video surveillance showed Ames carrying the gun prior to the run-in with cops, the law enforcement source said.
Then, on Friday, Ames tried to flee as police were executing a search warrant on his fifth-floor apartment at 225 Park Hill Ave. as part of an ongoing investigation, authorities allege. Two detectives chased him, and he threw a gun – another .38 caliber Smith and Wesson – as he ran, police allege.
He’s accused of assaulting the two detectives, though it’s not clear from the criminal complaint against him how he attacked them. The detectives, both assigned to the NYPD’s Staten Island Gangs Squad, suffered scraped knees and elbows, and one of them sprained his hamstring, the complaint alleges.
When detectives searched the apartment, they found two bullets and marijuana in his bedroom, police said.
Police also arrested one of his relatives, Willie Ames, 45, who was present in the apartment, court papers allege.
Dennis Ames faces multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, including second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree assault, according to information from Acting District Attorney Daniel Master’s office.
He remains held on $150,000 bail until his next appearance in Stapleton Criminal Court on Wednesday.
