Miller is wanted on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of illegal use of a weapon, Baton Rouge Police Spokesman Cpl. Don Kelly said.
Miller allegedly fired a handgun at the men after they refused to let him into Club Raggs around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday. Police said the guard told him he couldn't enter without being searched. When the owner agreed with the guard, the rapper pulled out a gun and tried to shoot the owner in the back, Kelly said.
The gun malfunctioned, but Miller fixed it and fired a round into the floor, Kelly said. Then the gun malfunctioned again and Miller drove off in a sport utility vehicle.
Kelly said Miller also is wanted on unrelated counts of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault with a firearm in a June incident. In that case, Miller allegedly forced his way inside a Baton Rouge home on June 14 and held one person at gunpoint while looking for a man with whom he'd had a fight earlier in the day, Kelly said.
Miller is the youngest brother of hip-hop mogul Master P (real name: Percy Miller), the founder of No Limit Records, a film company, a sports agent business, and a clothing line.
According to C-Murder's official Web site, the artist is in the process of finishing his latest album, "C-P-3.com," due out in October via No Limit. The album, named after New Orleans' Calliope project, where he grew up, is the follow up to last year's "Trapped In Crime," which topped Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200.
