YFN Lucci is wanted on a murder charge following a fatal shootout last month in southwest Atlanta, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 29-year-old rapper (born Rayshawn Bennett) is wanted on a number of charges, including murder, aggravated assault, participating in criminal street gang activity and a weapons charge.

On Dec. 10, emergency crews were called to the 900 block of Peeples Street, where 28-year-old James Adams was found with a gunshot wound to the head. Adams later died. Later in the night, a 32-year-old victim arrived at a nearby fire station with a gunshot wound in the abdomen, according to the AJC. He survived his injuries.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to YFN Lucci's arrest. Twenty-three-year-old Ra’von Boyd and 17-year-old Leroy Pitts were also arrested for their alleged roles in the shooting.

The rapper has placed five top 20-charting albums on Billboard's Top Rap Albums chart, including the top 10 set Ray Ray From Summerhill in 2018.  He also landed a top 10 hit on the Hot Rap Songs chart with “Everyday We Lit,” featuring PNB Rock, which is his sole top 40-charting tune on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
