UPDATE 9:00 AM EST ============
YFN Lucci turned himself in to Atlanta police last night and CNN reports the rapper is being held at the Fulton County jail. This after authorities offered a $5000 reward for information leading to his arrest on a felony murder charge. Police believe YFN Lucci is involved with the murder of 28-year-old James Adams on December 10th. TMZ reports Adams was seen being thrown from a moving SUV, and witnesses said he had a mortal gunshot blast to his head. Adams was later pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.
We’re told that just a few minutes later that same night, a man named Kevin Wright, 32, was also shot, but sought care at a local fire department and survived his wounds. Two others have also been arrested and charged with felony murder over the incident; 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd and 17-year-old Leroy Pitts.
In addition, YFN Lucci faces charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, aggravated assault, and participation in street gang activities. We’ll bring you more updates as soon as they are available. Until the next time it drips….
Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci, real name Rayshawn Bennett, 29, is wanted in Atlanta, Georgia for felony murder. Cops told TMZ he’s also looking at aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and participating in gang activities.
What happened? Apparently last month there were two men shot within just a few minutes of each other in Southwest Atlanta. One man was killed by a gunshot blast to the head and the other was injured but said to be still alive. Police have already apprehended two suspects in connection with the shooting – 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd and 17-year-old Leroy Pitts. They’ve both been charged with felony murder – now cops want YFN Lucci.
It’s being reported there is actually a $5000 reward for information on his capture. It’s a shame too, because things had been going so well recently for the “Dope Game” rhymer. He recently released a hit album just before Christmas and was also gifted a brand new Maybach Mercedes from his record label for all his successes.
We’ll keep you updated – until the next time it drips…
