Atlanta Rapper-Shooting

Rapper YFN Lucci, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, is sought on murder and other charges following a fatal shooting last month in Atlanta.

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci is wanted for murder in a December shooting that left one dead and another wounded, authorities said.

Atlanta police also announced a $5,000 reward on Tuesday for information leading to the arrest of the 29-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, news outlets reported.

Bennett is facing charges including murder, aggravated assault and participating in a criminal street gang related to a shootout in southwest Atlanta on Dec. 10.

Police said they found James Adams, 28, with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. Later that day, 32-year-old Kevin Wright arrived at a fire station with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. He survived.

Authorities determined both shootings were related.

Police said 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd and a 17-year-old juvenile also were charged in the shootings and arrested in Miami. The details of Bennett's alleged involvement weren't immediately released. It's unclear whether Bennett has an attorney to comment on his behalf.

Lucci is best known for his 2016 song “Key to the Streets” featuring Gwinnett County-based rap group Migos.
