Hurricane Chris was hit with a serious charge last week following a fatal shooting in Louisiana that left one man dead. Chris was charged with second-degree murder for his involvement in a shooting at a Texaco gas station. The rapper was subsequently arrested on Friday morning where he was held until last night, according to XXL. Chris posted $500K bond for his release from Caddo Correctional Centre in Shreveport on Sunday.

Chris was arrested after he shot and killed a man at a gas station in Louisiana. Police said that Chris had told them that he shot the man over speculation that the victim was attempting to rob his vehicle. After reviewing the footage, they deemed the Chris was not acting in self-defense. The detectives said that the security footage "showed that Dooley did not act in self-defense." Additionally, the police said that the vehicle he was driving in was reported stolen. He ultimately had to pay an additional $10K bond on top of the $500K.

The victim died at the Ochsner LSU Health hospital later after suffering multiple bullet wounds. 

"The prayers of Mr. Dooley are with the family of the deceased as well as his own family at this time. He is confident that at the end of a thorough and just investigation of this incident, his name will be cleared," Hurricane Chris' attorney said.
