The 29-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, is wanted on murder, aggravated assault, participating in criminal street gang activity and weapons charges, Atlanta police announced in a news release Tuesday.
Two others, 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd and 17-year-old Leroy Pitts, were arrested on similar charges in Miami for their alleged roles in the Dec. 10 shooting, authorities said.
James Adams was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head last month in the 900 block of Peeples Street, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. Emergency crews were called to the scene about 5:10 p.m., but Adams later died of his injuries.
A short time later, a second gunshot victim arrived at a nearby fire station with a wound to the abdomen, Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. John Chafee said in an emailed statement. The 32-year-old survived his injuries, but investigators determined the shootings were related.
According to the police report, the shootout occurred in the 900 block of Dimmock Street and Adams’ body was dropped off nearby. Officers found multiple shell casings at the scene and the second victim at Fire Station 14, authorities said.
A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to Bennett’s arrest.
Anyone with information on the rapper’s whereabouts is asked to call Atlanta police. Tipsters can remain anonymous, and be eligible for the cash reward, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website.
