YFN Lucci, 29, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, has turned himself in to police and faces a murder charge.
The Atlanta rapper surrendered himself on Wednesday (January 13) and is currently being held in Fulton County Jail, according to CNN. The news comes hours after Atlanta Police announced Lucci was wanted on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in street gang activity, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Following his detainment, Lucci’s attorney, Thomas Reynolds, told CNN in a statement, "The presumption of innocence is a fundamental constitutional right for every citizen. Beyond this, we have no further comment at this time.”
It’s alleged that Lucci was involved in a December 10 shooting that resulted in one man, James Adams, 28, dying after suffering a gunshot wound to his face, and a second victim, Kevin Wright, 32, arrived at an area fire station after sustaining a non-fatal gunshot wound to his abdomen — both incidents, homicide investigators determined, were likely related.
Police have arrested all three suspects involved in the investigation, including 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd, 17-year-old Leroy Pitts, and the “Everyday We Lit” musician.
In the early hours of Thursday (January 14), a mug shot of Lucci surfaced online. (See it above.)
