During his afternoon broadcast today (Mar 12), the V-103 host also announced that authorities are expected to issue a warrant for the arrest of a third individual, believed to be the shooter.Police have yet to respond to AllHipHop.com’s request for a comment.The shooting in question took place along a Southbound stretch of I-75 in Cincinnati, and may have been the continuation of an earlier argument between members of T.I.’s entourage at Club Ritz.The Atlanta-based rapper and his crew were traveling in two vans. They were approached by two unidentified vehicles, which proceeded to open fire, leaving 26-year-old Johnson dead and three others wounded.”I’m kind of like watching my life change right before my eyes,” T.I. said at Johnson’s funeral a few days later. “I’m figuring out whether or not I even want to keep doing this [stuff] right now. I don’t know.”
