The report also states that Dooley claimed the shootout was for self-defense and that the victim tried to steal his car, but the footage made the investigators believe otherwise. The car was also found to have been stolen from Texas, although Dooley claimed it was his car, resulting in a stolen property charge.
Shreveport police did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment on Friday.
The rapper's latest album, "King Cane", was released in 2017. His most famous song, "A Bay Bay", was released on the album "51/50 Ratchet" in 2007. He is also known for his song "Halle Berry (She Fine)". His most recent release is the single "How I Feel" from 2019.
