Houston rapper killed in atlanta

A prominent Houston rapper slaying has led to arrests and speculation as to whether the motive was robbery or he slaying was a possible drug deal. Authorities say they’re investigating the crime as an execution-style killing and as such, they’ve released few details. But what we do know is that 26-year-old Leroy Penix Jr. was known as “Poppa” and he had a large following in the hip-hop community.


And about an hour before Detiege was killed Friday, someone shot a driver in the head on Interstate 75, authorities said. That man remains hospitalized. A witness told police that the shot was fired after two cars tried to occupy the same lane. The shooter fled.
