With his rhyme partner Lil Boosie already in prison facing murder charges, Webbie found himself in the middle of a murder investigation on Monday.
The Louisiana-born rapper was questioned by law enforcement following a shooting at an Alabama nightclub that left one man dead. A police source who spoke to TMZ revealed that around 3 A.M. Sunday, they responded to an emergency call from the local hotspot Primetime, where Webbie was the headlining act. When they arrived they found a man in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the chest. The man died later at the hospital and Webbie was called in for questioning.
Reps for the “Savage Life” rapper confirmed to TMZ that he was questioned by local authority, but was at no time charged or arrested for the crime. With little information to offer Webbie was set free by the police.
Webbie’s close friend Lil Boosie is currently serving an eight-year sentence for a drug conviction and is awaiting trial on charges he participated in the murder of a rap rival. Boosie, who has been incarcerated since 2009, recently penned a letter to fans thanking them for their support. He also praised Webbie for holding him down throughout his legal ordeal.
