Police did not release the victim’s name. According to Vincent, he and the six suspects were arguing prior to the shooting. It was not immediately clear how they were connected to each other.
Braud, the rapper, has been arrested in DeKalb County multiple times since 2013. Last year, Braud retweeted a video from what appeared to be his private Snapchat account that showed a man slapping a zebra at a drive-through animal park in Troup County. Local authorities shared still images from the video and asked for the public’s help to identify the man.
The man in the video was never charged with a crime, but he was banned from the animal park, according to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office. Braud did not offer any further comment on the incident.
Dodson faces an additional violation of the street gang terrorism and prevention act charge and an additional aggravated assault charge, according to online jail records.
All six suspects are being held in the DeKalb County Jail.
