Hurricane Chris was busted for murder in Louisiana, TMZ has confirmed.

The rapper, best known for his 2007 song “A Bay Bay,” was arrested on second-degree murder charges after police say the entertainer shot and killed a man on Friday morning (June 19) at a Texaco gas station in Shreveport, Louisiana. Shreveport Police Department said the 31-year-old, whose real name is Christopher Dooley, Jr., claimed he was acting in self-defense when he shot the man multiple times after the two engaged in a struggle. However, surveillance footage revealed a different narrative, hence Chris’ getting booked for second-degree murder.

Additionally, the police officials indicated Chris had been driving in a vehicle that was reportedly stolen from Texas, resulting in the star getting slapped with a charge of illegal possession of stolen property.

Fans may recall the New Orleans native was a big hit in the mid-‘00s. In April 2007, he released his breakout smash debut track “A Bay Bay,” which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. The radio-friendly record also received a remix titled “The Ratchet Remix” that featured The Game, Lil Boosie, E-40, Baby, Angie Locc, and Jadakiss. The song preceded follow-up singles “The Hand Clap” and “Playas Rock,” all of which appeared on Chris’ debut studio album, 51/50 Ratchet.

Chris experienced similar success two years later with the release of his song “Halle Berry (She’s Fine),” which would serve as the lead single on his 2009 sophomore album, Unleashed.
