Suspect Arrested in Georgia for Murder of Fabolous Associate
Authorities announced on Wednesday (December 5) that they have arrested a 26 year-old Brooklyn man in Atlanta in connection with the stabbing death of Fabolous associate Shamel “Money Mel” McKinney. According to the New York Daily News, Anthony Taylor, of Prospect Park, could be returned to New York as early as today to face murder charges for the November 23 stabbing that took place in front of Manhattan nightclub Duvet. Investigators believe that the two men got into a fight inside the club when McKinney tried to rob Taylor of $10,000 worth of jewelry he was wearing. McKinney ended up with a knife wound in his chest and later died. Cops believe McKinney was a member of Fab’s Street Family crew, who they claim have targeted celebrities and club goers for robbery in the past. The rapper has denied that he was present at Duvet on the night of the incident. McKinney’s aunt Shirley expressed joy upon learning of the arrest. "He deserves to do the time. You can run but you can't hide," she told the News. "He deserves what he has coming."
