Feanyichi Uvukansi, 25, has been arrested as the main suspect in a Houston strip club shooting that left three people dead and injured rapper Trae Tha Truth.
According to chron.com, Kese Smith, spokesman for the Houston Police Department said, “We are looking for other suspects."
Two weeks ago, three people – Coy Thompson, 23, Erica Rochelle Dotson, 30, and Carlos Durell Dorsey, 31 – were killed when gunfire broke out in a parking lot after a Trae Tha Truth performance at a club at 9850 Westpark.
The rapper, whose legal name is Frazier Thompson III, and 37-year-old Willie Watkins, were shot and wounded in the incident. Later, Trae would tweet a picture of himself in a hospital bed.
According to police records, Uvukansi has an extensive criminal history, which includes a 2008 convictions for misdemeanor marijuana possession, misdemeanor criminal mischief, felony possession of a controlled substance, a felony burglary charge that appears to have been reduced to a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge, and felony assault of a public servant.
He served three years in prison and was released last September.
Records show that at the time of the shooting, Uvukansi was out on bond on charges of marijuana possession and retaliation. He remains at the Harris County Jail.
Police have said that Coy Thompson, also known as “Poppa C,” was the intended target.
Coy Thompson received threats, police said, after becoming involved in a domestic dispute. Police also have said he was involved in a shooting on Nov. 25 at an after-hours club that killed Dominic Levar Brown, his uncle. Brown, whose stage name was Money Clip D. Brown, was reportedly Trae’s top assistant.
