A suspect has been arrested following the tragic death of rapper Doe B over the weekend.
Doe B, real name Glenn Thomas, of Montgomery died after an early morning shooting on Saturday December 28th, local NBC affiliate WSFA reported.
The shooting occurred at the Centennial Hill Bar and Grill. The police arrived the scene to find Doe B, Kimberle Johnson and six other victims after they responded to a 911 call of multiple gun shots.
Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene while Doe B was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
According to the Montgomery Advertiser, police arrested a Montgomery man in Saturday’s fatal shooting of Doe B, and 21-year-old Kimberle Johnson, a student at Troy University.
Montgomery police charged Jason McWilliams, 25, with two counts of capital murder following the shooting at the bar. The suspect turned himself in late Sunday night, according to police.
Montgomery Police Department detectives determined that the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between McWilliams and Doe B. Doe B’s close associates told REVOLT that the two had a history and jealousy played a major role in the rapper’s death.
Hours after the shooting, McWilliams posted the following message on his Facebook page:
“FIRST OFF DON’T CALL MY NAME I AIN’T KILLED THA NIGGA ME N MY TEAM BOUT MONEY HATE ON A NIGGA WILL NEVA B MY MOVE BUT ITS OKAY MY NAME GET CALLED N A LOT OF SHIT ME N MY NIGGAS NOT CRASHDUMMYS WE CASHDUMMYS, BUT ONE MO THING BILLS STILL GOTTA B PAID N KIDS GOTTA B FEED ……..GOODDAY FACEBOOK JANIYA N QUEL GOTTA EAT. ……SOUTHGANG STANDUP GUY.”
A candlelight vigil was held at the Centennial on Sunday night. Johnson and Thomas were the city’s 47th and 48th homicide victims of 2013. In light of the tragedy, Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange has decided to close the Centennial.
