SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Christopher Dooley, also known as rap artist Hurricane Chris, posted bond and was released from jail Sunday, June 21.
Attorneys Alex Washington and Shantel Y.R. Wells, of the law office of Washington & Wells, have retained to represent him.
“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,” said Attorney Washington.
A Louisiana rapper was arrested following a deadly shooting Friday, June 19, in Shreveport. The incident happened around 1 a.m. at Texaco, in the 2600 block of Hollywood Avenue.
Officers arrived to find a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where he died a short time later.
The suspect, Christopher Dooley, 31, also known as Hurricane Chris, of the 1200 block of Commerce Street, made claims of self-defense after an alleged struggle over his vehicle.
However, Violent Crimes and Crime Scene Investigators secured video footage of the incident that detectives believe showed that Dooley did not act in self-defense. Detectives also learned that the vehicle the deceased man was allegedly trying to steal did not belong to Dooley.
It was reported stolen out of Texas.
Following interviews with investigators, Dooley was charged with (1) count of Second Degree Murder and (1) count of Illegal Possession of Stolen Things.
