Rapper YFN Lucci wanted on murder charge

The New Year isn’t off to a great start for YFN Lucci

The rapper, born Rayshawn Lamar Bennett, is wanted by Atlanta police who suspect he was involved in a shooting that left one dead and another injured last month.

The 29-year-old is wanted on multiple charges including felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Two others, 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd and 17-year-old Leroy Pitts, were already arrested in Miami in connection with the fatal shooting. They were booked for felony murder.

The arrests are in connection to an incident that occurred on December 10 where officers responded to calls of a person shot and found James Adams, 28, lying in the street with a gunshot wound to his face. Adams was taken to a local hospital where he died.

A short time later, a second victim, Kevin Wright, 32, arrived at an area fire station with a gunshot wound to his abdomen, the report states. Investigators determined the two shootings were related.

Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to YFN Lucci’s arrest.
