Rapper C-Murder, the younger brother of hip-hop mogul Master P, has been arrested in the shooting death of a 16-year-old at a nightclub, authorities said. Police accused Corey Miller, 30, of fatally shooting Steve Thomas following an argument Jan. 12 at the Platinum Club in Harvey, La. Miller has not yet been charged. Prosecutors will decide what charges he should face, police said.
As many as 300 people were inside the club when Miller, who was out on bail on an attempted murder charge stemming from an incident in Baton Rouge last August, pulled out a handgun and killed Thomas with a single gunshot, police said.
There was no indication that Thomas had pulled out a weapon, and the reason for the argument was unknown, authorities said. Officials at the Jefferson Parish jail said today (Jan. 19) that Miller did not yet have an attorney.
Starting in the late 1990s, Miller was the core artist on No Limit Records. An attorney for Master P’s No Limit Records, said the record company might provide a statement later.
