A grand jury has indicted another man in connection to the death of Texas rapper Mo3.
According to the Dallas Morning News, 28-year-old Devin Maurice Brown is facing federal murder charges for his role in the fatal shooting of Mo3 late last year. The rapper, born Melvin Noble, was driving on I-35 in Dallas on Nov. 11 when a masked gunman approached his vehicle and opened fire. Witnesses say Mo3 tried to flee on foot, but was shot multiple times in broad daylight. A bystander was also wounded as he sat in his car during the incident. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
The second suspect, 22-year-old Kewon Dontrell White, was arrested on a gun charge back in December and was indicted on a murder charge in February. Brown was already behind bars at the time of White’s December arrest, as he was taken into custody following a raid at his home on Nov. 19. The search reportedly yielded a stolen AK-47, as well as synthetic marijuana and methamphetamine. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute a controlled substance. Dallas News reports he pleaded guilty to those charges this month.
The two suspects, whom authorities described as “affiliates,” remain in custody.
