Dallas police arrested 21-year-old Kewon Dontrell White on Wednesday. White was taken into federal custody for prohibited person in possession of a firearm and charged with murder.
Rapper gunned down on Dallas highway
Rapper Mo3 was gunned down Nov. 11 on Interstate 35E near Illinois Ave. and Clarendon Drive in Dallas. Mo3 whose real name is Melvin Noble attempted to run away from the suspect after getting out of his vehicle. The suspect fled the scene in a black Chevy Camaro after gunning Noble down.
During the investigation, police say an eyewitness contacted police and identified White as the suspect. An arrest warrant was issued on Tues. Dec. 8. The following day, White was taken into custody. Police say the suspect’s bond will be set by the magistrate.
As news spread about the shooting, fans, family, and supporters gathered at Dallas City Hall to celebrate the life of Mo3. There were some attendees that drove from as far as South Carolina to show support for the fallen star.
Texas ‘lit like a bic’ after multiple shootings
Texas became hotter than a stove before investigators could solve the Mo3 shooting. New Orleans rapper Boosie went to Dallas the same week Mo3 was shot to pay his respects. Gunshots erupted near Big T Plaza in Dallas. Police were then called to Parkland Memorial Hospital where Boosie was being treated for a gunshot wound.
The ‘Lone Star’ state definitely seemed like a “no fly zone” for rappers. Rapper Benny the Butcher also encountered gun smoke in an attempted armed robbery. Both Boosie and Benny the Butcher suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
Mo3’s manager speaks out
Mo3’s manager Brandon Rainwater explained he was on the phone during the time Noble was killed. As he reflected on Mo3’s legacy, he stated,
“I watched him rise as a star, from a regular kid, basically homeless when I met him, to a person with power and enough revenue to support his family,” Rainwater told CBS Dallas.
“We lost a good speaker, a poet, an artist.”
