DaBaby No Longer Facing Charges After Deadly N. Carolina Shooting
According to WSOC-TV, charges against DaBaby for his connection to a deadly shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina have been dropped. The Charlotte-born rapper had been charged with carrying a concealed gun and was arrested after the death of 19-year-old Jalyn Craig.
The alleged incident took place at a Walmart in Huntersville, North Carolina on Nov. 5 of last year. Police came to the scene after shots reportedly went off inside the store. They arrived to find that Craig had been hit in the midsection and died. Four people were subsequently taken into custody by the Huntersville Police Department.
DaBaby verified that he was indeed involved in the shooting, explaining that it was a matter of self-defense and that the camera footage would support his story. He alleged that while he was shopping with his family, he was approached by two men in the store who had weapons.
“If them gunshots ain’t go off, n***a, my fuckin’ daughter could’ve got hit, son could’ve got hit, me,” he said. “Fuckin’ lawyers telling me not to say something and shit, fuck all that. Two n***as walk down on you and your whole muthafuckin’ family, threaten y’all, whip out on y’all, n***a, let me see what y’all gon’ too. You feel me?”
