Police have identified a suspect in the June 20 murder of rapper Lil Snupe, according to shreveporttimes.com. Three warrants have been issued for the arrest of Tony D. Holden, 36, one each on the charges of first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to the report. Holden is 5' 8'', weighs about 215 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes, according to shreveporttimes.com.
Lil Snupe, whose given name is Addarren Ross, was involved in an argument early Thursday morning at the Maplewood Apartments in Winnfield, Louisiana. "We are told they were betting on a video game," Winnfield police Lt. Charles Curry told The Times Friday. "Supposedly he (Holden) robbed him (Ross) of money," Curry said as explanation of the robbery charge, according to shreveporttimes.com.
Lil Snupe was shot at least twice in his torso and was pronounced dead at the scene by Winn Parish coroner’s investigators, according to reports. He was 18.
Holden has been in legal trouble before. He has been arrested on several drug charges, as well as one count each of forcible rape and second-degree kidnapping, and two counts of aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon, according to shreveporttimes.com.
Lil Snupe signed to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label this year. R.N.I.C. (Real Nigga in Charge), Snupe's first mixtape, has been downloaded more than 60,000 times at DatPiff.com.
Winnfield police say anyone with knowledge of Holden's location should call the police department at 318-628-3511.
