(AllHipHop News) Trentavious "Bankroll Fresh" White was shot outside Atlanta's Street Execs studios on March 4, 2016. The rising rapper later died.
For the past two years, there has been a lot of speculation about what led to the shootout that took place that night. Fellow Atlanta native Mendez "No Plug" Owens insisted he fired at Bankroll in order to defend himself, and police are now backing up that claim.
"Our investigation determined that [White] was shot in self-defense," said APD Sgt. John Chafee. Authorities announced that no charges will be filed in the case.
Video of the moments that led up to the shooting has been released. The footage shows Bankroll Fresh and No Plug getting into a physical altercation before Bankroll is seen firing an SKS rifle at No Plug's vehicle.
No Plug reportedly fired back at Bankroll. The "Hot Boy" rhymer was shot and eventually passed away on the way to the hospital. There were rumors the bad blood between the two men was over a woman, but Bankroll's uncle told AllHipHop that was not true.
"That was so far from the truth on what they fell out on. He said that Bank came over to the 9th Ward and they walked him out of there because he didn’t want nothing to happen to him," stated Street Money Worldwide executive Marvin Shadi Powers. "How did you walk him out of there when you walked him out of there by gunpoint? How is that being a friend when you walk someone out of a neighborhood by gunpoint?"
