Silento has been arrested and charged for allegedly fatally shooting his older cousin. The rapper was arrested on Monday by the authorities for the incident that happened outside of Atlanta last month.

According to reports, Silento who is just 23 and whose real name is Richard Lamar Hawk, was charged with murder in the Jan. 21 shooting death of Frederick Rooks, 34, according to the DeKalb County Police Department.

Rooks was found with several gunshot wounds in a residential neighbourhood in Panthersville, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, citing police.

Surveillance footage obtained by investigators showed several cars fleeing the scene and at least one gunshot, according to an incident report obtained by the newspaper.

A motive for the fatal shooting remains unclear.

Hawk has had several recent run-ins with the law leading up to his Monday arrest, including two busts in one week last August in California, the report said.

In one of the cases, Hawk allegedly broke into a random Los Angeles home wielding a hatchet in search of his girlfriend.

The rapper’s hit 2015 song “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” has received nearly 1.8 billion views on YouTube.
