Breaking News: Police ID Rapper Young Vito As Suspect In Slim Dunkin Murder

(AllHipHop News) Police are seeking an Atlanta rapper in connection with the murder of Slim Dunkin.

Rapper Young Vito is being sought in connection with the shooting death of Slim Dunkin, who was killed in an Atlanta studio last Friday (December 16).

Police believe Young Vito shot Slim Dunkin in the chest, during an altercation that allegedly started over a piece of candy.

Atlanta police have urged the 28-year-old suspect born, Vinson Hardimon, to turn himself in immediately for his own safety.

“We are urging Mr. Hardimon to turn himself in to authorities because we have reason to believe he may be in danger,” police said in a statement released to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Police are urging the public to help find Young Vito, by calling the tip line or homicide unit at 404-577-TIPS (8477).

The news comes on the eve of Slim Dunkin’s funeral.

The rapper, born Mario Hamilton, will be laid to rest during a lavish ceremony at Berean Christian Church, funded in part by 1017 Brick Squad affiliates Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame.

      • MrTroyMercy

        I agree with you on that homie , but it sounds he punched Dunk and dunk stumped him then homie shot him . It’s still senseless for anyone die over candy ,twitter or any materialistic shet . You can’t take none of that shet with you and when you doing hardtime and not enjoying your freedom , you would see how stupid it was to kill a man over candy ( alledgelly ) .. point is that the entire situation was stupid on both parts.

    Can we stop this respecting the shooter BS. Thanks jay z you bitch ass. When 8 out of 10 times the shooter is the real coward.

    You couldn’t win a fight so you ran like a coward and got a gun.

    Then after you shoot an unarmed man like a coward you go run.

    Like what. Yup. A coward.

    Now his people’s are looking for you. The cops are looking for you.

    And where is he at. Hiding like the ultimate coward.

    How do you respect a coward.

    • “Can we stop this respecting the shooter BS. Thanks jay z you bitch ass. When 8 out of 10 times the shooter is the real coward. ”  

      I cosign that shit fam. Most of these fags pull guns because they can’t scrap.

    • MrTroyMercy

  • Vincent BigVdabadguy Neclos

    Forreal he got fame for the wrong reason now.  That’s crazy.  RIP Slim Dunk

  • Royal_Chiefa

    Well..he’s only got three choices…

    A) Turn himself into the legalized gang we call the Police.
    B) Get out of the state and/or out of the country
    C) Continue to be reckless and get caught by someone seeking revenge

  • Mos High

    By the comments most people think this crime/murder was wrong. But its only one incident of thousands. Does this mean that communites are getting fed up and will turn in the reckless ones more often? We all understand when certain man dead, that they deserve it, but will this mean more of us MEN will stand up for what is right…I doubt it, I still think we are way more talk then action…. Peace and blessings, keep safe all!!!

  • Black Exodus

    My brothers….you live by the sword…you die by it. The energy you put out….is what you get back. There are consequences for every action we do. My sincere condolences to this brother but he has to pay the piper one way or another.

  • It is what it is.

    Respecting the shooter?

    I look at it differently , without knowing the facts:

    It wasn’t the candy , but the issue of respect.
    Punk / Coward?

    Hmmm, was Vito ( Little Man ) minding his business , when Slim ( bigger man ) rolled up , on some CTE / BrickSquad ( Gucci Mane? ) etc., type $hyt , and was like : ” You don’t need no CANDY! ( >>>>Snatches it out Vito’s Hand / Squeezes Vito’s mouth in Darth Vader grip & plucks candy from roof of his mouth? )  then says : “You already SWEET! ” , b4 gorilla pimp slapping him to the floor?

    Respect is a MoFo. In some Asian cultures , it’s called ” Saving Face ” . Samurai would stab himself in gut & slice around & die….before he allowed himself to live without self respect.

    ( Around yr 8 into that 25yr bid though , respect starts to lose it’s value. )

    Is the weaker man supposed to get Deebo’d by bully?
    Where does he draw the line? ( Not How )

    Rosemo700? from BrickSquad just got killed & basically , was on some Gorilla / Bully / Deebo type $hyt.

    That should have sent a message to Brick Squad right there to avoid the boolchet!

    Sometimes it can be costly.

    Candy? There are some people who will go all out over a penny…depending on the circumstances.

    Sometimes, all a man has is his self respect , taking it , is akin to taking everything he has.

    As the story is told….Slim was the instigator….who messed with the wrong dude.

    Did the dude have to shoot? ( Legally? )

    Legally , he had an opportunity to flee , so self defense won’t work.
    Escalating force? He used the force needed to get his candy back. ( Ok, sounds stupid , but what if it was Young Berg & a $100K chain? …ok, Bad example, but still….. )

    What if Slim ran his pockets , which he basically did, took something by force , & Vito has a legal burner & license to carry? ( Whole different Topic )

    Does the value matter?
    Candy cost a nickel…but pu$$y is free , if you take or try to take the pu$$y & get that Mocha , you catch a bid too , if you survive.

    Should Vito have took the L? Of course.
    His life is turned upside down now.

    That’s my problem with thug rapping , etc., it never explains that after the ” Buck! Buck! Buck! ” , how the shooter’s life gets fugged up.

     ( Studio Gangsta by 5TH Ward Boyz feat : J-Prine & Scarface = ” Your lies are getting to strong..How the fugg you kill a ni99a on every song?” )
    Youtube it!

    Not for me to say , either way ,  but there is a strong chance alcohol played a roll in this incident.

    Probably on both parts.

    O.J. Simpson in jail for trying to get his stuff back.

    Different circumstance , cuz Vito / Slim was ongoing incident , in which Vito allegedly could have retreated. ( <<< Here is legal issue ) 
    If Slim just robbed him & was standing between Vito & the exit?

    IE: Vito minding his business , handling his business ( Recording in studio , he paid for , etc. ) & Slim on some youtube ( rosemo700 ) beating / robbing footage type $hyt  , beating the brake dust off Vito , stripping him , etc., …cuz he bigger , rap beef , etc.? , mixed with alcohol?

    The $hyt is a double tragedy , even more , because of the families , friends & fans? affected.

    Flip side , the two could have instead talked with mutual respect , even recorded together , filmed a video & been on some groundbreaking brother hood $hyt by example  & made $$$???? or at least influenced lives for the positive.

    • spizzy2012

      do the facts matter? another young brother dead over some complete bullshyt.

      thank God I was bought up to not give a f–K what other people think about me. I could care less if you respect me…as long as I respect myself.

      • So if Slim Dunkin saw you eating candy & said : ” You so full of $hyt , you should be eating it instead….” & proceeds to grab the back of your neck with his left hand & stuff dog $hyt in your mouth with the right & grabbed your chin & forced you to chew it , with his right hand , on some DeeBo $hyt…..would the facts matter then? Respect?

        Some cats just ain’t having it!

        Wether they should or not is a different story.

        If you mess with someone minding their own business cuz you bigger , on some Bully$hyt…anything can happen.

        Chess not Checkers!

        Gotta think it through!

    • EL_BARK

      Yo that shet not going to strike home to the majority of the people on here.
      Lol

      Like i said before, if you think it was about candy, its clear some of the poster,
      Still on they mama porch. And havent hop
      Of yet.

      Or young like calejado, thinking that sonny murk dude over a parking spot. In a bronx tale.
      And everybiody but a few, is laughing,
      ” some of yall will understand when yall get older i guess.

      Just like, your example, of slim dunk bulling him, or doing some disrespectful shet, that caused it.

      Truth is unless somebody was in the studio, dont nobody know what happen.
      And yall sound suspect, judging dude, with out knowing all the facts.
      Not defendinh him, or taking side. Just sit back laughing,
      At how its so clear, some of yall never been through shet.

    It’s terrible how this tragedy is being garnished – A murder over candy? A picture of the “alleged” shooter that says a thousand words, not to mention, can easily make one think he’s guilty by his emotional expression and body language?

    We lost another one. RIP brother.

  • Dank33x

    hope the goons find him b4 the feds do

  • 12factoid
