The man who is believed to have shot and killed Louisiana rapper Lil Snupe has reportedly surrendered to authorities and has been booked into the local jail. According to ABC News, 36-year-old Tony Holden was booked into the Winnfield city jail Tuesday (Jun 25) on charges of first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
A news release from the Winnfield Police Department stated that Holden has a criminal record and is a convicted felon, and that his bond had not been set.
Here is a photo of Holden being taken into custody by Winnfield Police Chief Johnny Ray Carpenter:
As we reported last week, Lil Snupe was fatally shot on June 20th, just one week after his 18th birthday.
According to the Associated Press, the shooting happened after an argument broke out while Snupe was playing a video game at a friend’s apartment. Snupe, whose real name is Addarren Ross, was reportedly shot twice in the chest, and when EMS workers arrived, he was pronounced dead on the scene.
“We are told they were betting on a video game … Supposedly, he (Holden) robbed him (Ross) of money,” police Lieutenant Charles Curry told The Shreveport Times, which explains the robbery charge.
