Rapper C-Murder, the brother of No Limit Records mogul Master P, turned himself into Baton Rouge, La., police today (Aug. 17) and was awaiting booking for allegedly trying to fire a gun at a nightclub owner earlier this week. Police said the 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller, faced charges of attempted first-degree murder and illegal use of a dangerous weapon in the Tuesday night confrontation at Club Raggs in Baton Rouge.

He faced separate burglary and firearms charges in an incident in June, police said.

Miller's surrender follows the filing of a lawsuit yesterday by night club owner Norman Sparrow, security guard Daryl Jackson, and others who allege that the problems started when Jackson asked to search Miller for a weapon before he entered the club. Miller wanted to enter without being searched, but Sparrow refused.

The lawsuit alleges that Miller grabbed Sparrow by the arm and that Sparrow pulled away, at which point Miller is accused of pulling out a gun and trying to fire at Sparrow. The gun jammed. Police spokesman Cpl. Don Kelly said Miller tried to clear the jam and fire again, but the gun would not discharge.

The lawsuit also names No Limit Records, Bout It Management, Bout It Inc. and their insurance company as defendants. Roy Maughan Jr., an attorney for No Limit and for Miller, said he has not seen the lawsuit and could not discuss it.
