According to the Associated Press, Atlanta police say they have an arrest warrant for a man in the killing of the Waka Flocka Flame associate, born Mario Hamilton. Police identified the man they’re seeking as 28-year-old Vinson Hardimon, a rapper known as Young Vito.
Dunking was shot to death in the chest on Friday (December 16) after getting into an argument with another person in a recording studio that evening. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Police are urging Hardimon to turn himself in to authorities because they have reason to believe he may be in danger.
As previously reported on XXLMag.com, Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane are apparently voluntarily footing most of the bill for Slim Dunkin’s funeral. A rep for Waka and Gucci told TMZ that the rappers are making sure Slim is laid to rest in the best way possible, with an elaborate funeral that includes a white horse-drawn carriage, massive white floral arrangements and a white dove release ceremony. Slim’s family will cover some funeral costs, but Waka and Gucci are paying for the bulk of it. —Gina Montana
