The man who shot and killed Lil Snupe has surrendered to police, just a week after the rapper’s untimely death.
That man, 36-year-old Tony D. Holden, turned himself in on Tuesday morning at the Winnfield, Louisiana Police Department. He shot Lil Snupe after a video game bet ended in an argument.
Police Chief Johnny Ray Carpenter and Assistant Police Chief Russell Jones took Holden into custody without incident, police Lt. Charles Curry said.
Holden has been booked into Winnfield City Jail on one count each of first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. No bond amount has been set. It was not immediately known if Holden had an attorney.
His criminal record includes previous, unrelated arrests on several drug charges, mostly involving cocaine, as well as one count each of forcible rape and second-degree kidnapping and two counts of aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon.
Although Holden has surrendered, the investigation into Lil Snupe’s death continues. Here, Winnfield Police Chief Johnny Ray Carpenter escorts Holden into the Winnfield City Jail.
The Maybach Music artist’s funeral will be on Saturday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
