Snootie Wild, a former CMG label mate who was wounded in the neck Friday night, has died, according to his roommates.
“Police say they arrived at the location around 2 a.m. after reacting to their Shotspotter Program, which detects gunshots around Houston,” according to ABC 13 Houston. Calls of shots fired began to come in once they were on their way.”
A neighbor’s camera captured the incident. Snootie is said to have backed into a ditch. “It appears that he backed into the ditch by accident.” Then the other vehicle arrived, and everyone exited the vehicle. They were conversing for a few moments when gunfire erupted from nowhere. Officer R. Willkens stated, “There was only one shot.”
After reports circulated online that the Memphis rapper had died, his official Facebook and Instagram profiles reported his demise. “Your body is no longer with us, but your NAME & LEGACY will go on forever!” #TeamYayo4Life”
At this moment, no arrests have been made, but police believe they are looking for a man and a woman in the neighborhood.
Roomies, we’ll keep you updated on this. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
