FBI seeks man accused of killing Atlanta music producer's brother 

The FBI is looking for a man accused of shooting and killing the brother of popular Atlanta music producer Drumma Boy.

“Watson should be considered armed and dangerous,” Rowson said.

Just before 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10, officers responded to a person shot call at the House of Fresh Boutique in the 1700 block of Howell Mill Road, according to Atlanta police.

They found Miles, 48, of Atlanta, and took him to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

“Watson allegedly got into a verbal altercation with the victim outside the store and shot Miles several times,” Rowson said. “Witnesses told police that Watson fled from the location after the shooting in a black sedan.”

Anyone with information about Watson is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, text information to 274637 or visit crimestoppersatlanta.org. Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000.
