Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci (born Rayshawn Bennett) is currently being sought by Atlanta police in connection with a December shooting, and faces a slew of charges including federal murder, according to Atlanta Police in a statement to The FADER. The story first emerged in a report from a local CBS affiliate.

The shootings took place on December 10 in southwest Atlanta. Police responded to reports of a shooting at 5:20 pm and transported 28-year-old James Adams to a nearby hospital where he died.
