“Slim Dunkin was inside this particular room, when according to witnesses someone came in struck him and a fight ensued,” said homicide detective David Quinn to the news station while walking through the studio. “The information we are getting—and it’s unconfirmed—but this whole thing was over a piece of candy. The fight spilled out into this area where he was attacked and beat, and based on the evidence we have, whoever he was fighting with secured a weapon and shot him, whereby he fell on this table.”
The detective also said that the Brick Squad Monopoly rapper, born Mario Hamilton, stood at 6’8” and was substantially larger than his adversary.
“There were at least 20-30 people in this studio at the time, the fact that Atlanta Police arrived on call to Grady Hospital first, we didn’t have the opportunity to speak to any of those people,” he continued. “We came here almost an hour and a half later.”
Slim Dunkin had been gaining momentum recently, with collaborations with Waka, Gucci Mane, French Montana and more. —Adam Fleischer
