According to reports, a Florida rapper named La’Darion Chandler shot a 33-year-old man named John McGee in the back after words were exchanged between the two in December 2022.
McGee was known as “Bang Bang” and was reportedly released from prison in October 2022. McGee allegedly was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries related to the shooting but passed away 24 days later after refusing treatment from the hospital.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd spoke on how police caught up with Chandler, saying, “He’s not much of a rapper. My rapper expert says he doesn’t sing well. He doesn’t move well. He’s just a terrible rapper. But, he’s a stupid rapper. He not only makes a rap video about shooting somebody, but he also admits to shooting the guy in the back. I’m a coward rapper, that’s what I am. Watch me shoot the guy in the back.”
Chandler was arrested by police after he pulled a gun on a man only blocks from where he allegedly shot Bang Bang. Police are reportedly still searching for the murder weapon and are offering a $5,000 reward. As of now, Chandler was charged with first-degree murder.
