Louisiana rapper Hurricane Chris has been released on bond from jail after posting a $500,000 bond from being charged with second-degree murder and illegal possession of stolen goods. A rep for the Caddo Correctional Center confirmed he was released this past Sunday.
Chris was arrested on Friday (June 19) after he shot a man outside a gas station around 1 a.m. News reports claimed Hurricane Chris believed the man was attempting to steal his car so he fired his weapon after a brief struggle.
The man was shot multiple times and was to Ochsner LSU Health hospital where he died from his injuries.
Unfortunately for Hurricane Chris, the police aren’t buying his claims of self-defense. Investigators reportedly obtained video footage of the incident that “showed Dooley did not act in self-defense.” Detectives also said the vehicle Chris was attempting to protect was reported stolen out of Texas.
Chris’ attorney issued a statement over the weekend, which read, “The prayers of Mr. Dooley are with the family of the deceased as well as his own family at this time. He is confident that at the end of a thorough and just investigation of this incident, his name will be cleared.”
Stay tuned for more as this story develops.
