Atlanta Police are searching for YFN Lucci, real name Rayshawn Bennett, for his alleged role in the shooting death of 28-year-old James Adams.
Police responded to a shooting in southwest Atlanta on December 10, 2020. Cops discovered Adams in the street with a gunshot wound to his head. Adams was rushed to Grady Hospital where he passed away from his injuries.
Reports say minutes later, 32-year-old Kevin Wright arrived at a local fire station after also suffering a gunshot injury to the abdomen. However, Wright's injuries were nonfatal.
Investigators determined that the two shootings were related. According to the police report, a shootout occurred in the 900 block of Dimmock Street, and Adams' body was dropped off nearby. Multiple shell casings were found at the scene and the second victim.
While current reports have not detailed 29-year-old YFN Lucci's involvement in the case, he's currently 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 also arrested on similar charges in Miami for their alleged roles in the shooting.
Stay tuned for more details.
