Rot Ken from Internet Money has been arrested in connection with the  murder of a 24-year-old man in Augusta, Georgia.

The rapper and an accomplice allegedly shot two men in April, leaving one man dead and the other injured, according to a report from The Augusta Press published on Sunday (June 18).

According to reports, the shooting took place in “broad daylight,” with the shooters jumping out of a car and shooting into the victims’ vehicle, killing Usaini Yunusa, a passenger. Kobe Burns, the driver, was reportedly drunk when he sped off and crashed into some trees, but he was still able to drive away. He was injured and taken to the hospital, where he later was charged with DUI.
