Dex Osama Fired Gun In Air Before He Was Fatally Shot, Footage Shows



Newly surfaced footage shows Dex Osama just moments before he was fatally shot outside the Crazy Horse strip club in the early hours of Monday, Sept. 7, according to USA Today. The “Death On Me” rapper was the first to fire a shot the morning he was killed.



Footage shows a riled up Osama walking out of the gentleman’s club with his crew and letting off several shots in the air. Otis Davis, a 47-year-old suspect in the case, can be seen firing a shot in Osama’s chest. Onlookers scatter while a shootout ensues with 25 shots fired, Fox 2 Detroit reports.



Davis and Dietrick Odums, 31, have been charged with Osama’s murder. Davis faces charges of open murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and felony firearm. Odums is charged with assault with intent to murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and felony firearm.

The surveillance footage was enough evidence for 36th District Judge Kenneth King to rule both Davis and Odums should stand trial on all charges.

Judge King noted Osama bared some responsibility in the senseless act of violence.

“This kind of stupid, outrageous conduct in this city has to stop,” Judge King said.

Davis admitted to shooting Osama in a statement read aloud by a police detective in a Friday, Oct. 30 hearing:

“I saw him with the gun in his left hand then he switched it to the right hand. Once he switched from the left hand to the right hand I thought he was about to shoot. So I shot him.”


Davis was paroled in 2012 after serving a minimum 20-year sentence for a 1989 second-degree murder case, according to court records obtained by the Free Press. His parole was discharged last year.

Dex’s girlfriend, Chantell Sturdivant, who was dancing at the Crazy Horse on that morning, testified that the “Clean Up Man” rapper poured champagne on her prior to his shooting death.



Dex was upset with Sturdivant for attempting to dance with a man whom they both knew. He signaled her over to him, poured liquor on her and told her to get dressed.

“When he poured the champagne on me, I ran to the back,” she told 36th District Judge Kenneth King and a packed Detroit courtroom during the preliminary examination for the two men charged in Dex’s death.

Sturdivant said she heard a shot while in her dressing room.

A witness tended to Dex’s injuries by applying pressure to his wounds in an effort to keep him alive. Dex told him he was getting cold as the two waited about 20 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, Fox 2 Detroit reports.

According to the witness, Dex’s dying words were: “Please don’t let me die.”



Davis and Odums’ trial will begin Nov. 6.
