(AllHipHop News) According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, Mario Hamilton, known in the rap community as Slim Dunkin, was shot over a small piece of candy last Friday at a recording studio in Southeast Atlanta.
Yesterday, Detective David Quinn of the Atlanta Police Department walked reporters through the crime scene, as he explained exactly what he believes occurred on the night of the murder.
“Slim Dunkin was inside this particular room, when according to witnesses someone came in struck him and a fight ensued. The information we are getting and its unconfirmed, but this whole thing was over a piece of candy.” Quinn explained to WSB-TV. “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.”
Due to the fact that there were a significant number of people at the studio, police are hoping witnesses will come forward to give further information.
Unfortunately, according to Detective Quinn, Atlanta Police arrived at the crime scene an hour and a half later, as they were first called to Grady Memorial Hospital where Slim Dunkin was pronounced dead.
“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. We came here [the studio] an hour and a half later,”
Since Slim Dunkin’s passing, there has been an outpouring of support from rappers that knew the fallen member of Waka Flocka’s Brick Squad Movement.
Slim Dunkin recently shot his last video with Waka Flocka, Jadakiss and Styles P for the song “Lightz On”.
