Rap Artist Hurricane Chris Face Murder Charges following Louisiana Shooting
Rapper Hurricane Chris was arrested on a murder charge Friday following an early morning shooting at a gas station, according to the authorities.
Police officers said the rapper claimed self-defense after shooting a man whom he thought was attempting to steal his car.
However, a video footage showed a different scenario from what the 31-year-old rapper, whose actual name is Christopher Dooley Jr., said and the car he was in had also been reported stolen from Texas.
The incident happened 1 a.m. Friday when officers responded to a shooting at a gas station in Shreveport. They found one person suffering from several gunshot wounds.
The victim was pronounced death at a hospital.
The Shreveport native is best known for his 2007 album “51/50 Ratchet,” which includes his hit single, “A Bay Bay.”
