Police issued an arrest warrant for C-Murder on Wednesday after the rapper allegedly shot at two nightclub employees in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
C-Murder, Master P's brother, is wanted on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of illegal use of a weapon, Baton Rouge Police spokesperson Col. Maryann Godawa said Thursday (August 16).
Police said the No Limit rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller, fired at the owner of Club Raggs just before midnight on Tuesday, after the owner and the doorman refused to let C-Murder enter without searching him. The gun malfunctioned on the first shot, but Miller fixed it and fired into the floor, according to an account given by Godawa. After a third shot malfunctioned, she said, he fled in his sport utility vehicle.
C-Murder is also wanted on counts of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault with a firearm for an unrelated incident in which police say the rapper forced his way inside a Baton Rouge home on June 14 and held a person at gunpoint. He was allegedly searching for a man he fought with earlier that day.
Police did not have the victim's names in either incident. Calls to Club Raggs were not returned, and a spokesperson for C-Murder at No Limit/Priority had no comment.
C-Murder recently recorded a remake of N.W.A's "F--- Tha Police" with Trick Daddy called "Watch the Police" (see "P. Diddy Collaborates With Bowie, Face To Face This Time"). The song is featured on the upcoming soundtrack to "Training Day."
CP3.com, the rapper's fourth solo album, is due October 23, the label spokesperson said.
