Suspect Arrested in Trae Tha Truth Shooting

A man has been charged in the recent shooting involving Trae Tha Truth.

According to KHOU, 25-year-old Feanyichi Uvukansi was arrested Wednesday (July 4) in connection with the shooting, which occurred last month in Houston and left three people dead and two others wounded, including Trae. Coy “Poppa C” Thompson, 23, Erica Rochelle Dotson, 30, and Carlos Durell Dorsey, 31, died from gunshot wounds sustained during the shootout. Reports have suggested that a domestic altercation days prior to the shooting involving Poppa C may have factored in to the violence that night.

When reached by, Trae declined to comment on the arrest.

A few days after the incident, though, he did open up about what transpired. “I’m not sure exactly what the altercation was necessarily about, but long story short, whatever transpired, they ran in my direction, so in the process of running in my direction, that kind of had everybody in the open,” Trae told back on June 21. “So as the altercation came my way, shots were being dispersed, but since it was coming our direction, it was a crowd of people. Everybody was wrong place, wrong time.”

Even amidst the tragedy, the gravely-voiced rhymer was grateful for the support he received from his peers. “I have received a lot of support throughout the industry. Immediately,” he said. “Yo Gotti called me when I was in the hospital. Trey Songz hit me. Rick Ross hit me. 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Lupe. Meek Mill. Waka. Really, 98 percent of the industry called me already and been real supportive, let me know, if I need anything [they were there]. Of course Tip been real supportive, that’s my brother. A lot of people been checking on me and seeing what’s needed.”
