Rapper turns himself in to police on suspicion of murder

25 year-old Radric Davis, who is known as the hip hop artist Gucci Mane, turned himself in to DeKalb County, Georgia police this evening on suspicion of murder.

Davis was notified Wednesday of the arrest warrant, while in New York, according to his attorney, Dennis Scheib.

Mane was in New York on Thursday for a show.

“He said, ‘Hey, I’ll come down’—he’s not trying to avoid it,” Scheib said.

The attorney said the shooting was in self-defense and that Mane did not even know anyone was injured in the gunfight.

Mane was in a DeKalb County home with a woman on May 10 when five men entered with guns and duct tape, his lawyer said. Mane traded fire with the men, who later fled, Scheib said.

Gucci Mane's first full-length CD, "Trap House," is set to be released this coming Tuesday.
