Rapper Lil’ Phat, born Melvin Vernell, III, was shot and killed Thursday night outside Atlanta, Ga., The Atlanta Journal- Constitution reports.
Lil’ Phat, known for his affiliation with Louisiana rappers Lil Boosie and Webbie, was reportedly gunned down outside Northside Hospital in Sandy Springs, Ga. He was brought in the hospital’s E.R. where he was later pronounced dead.
Hospital officials placed the facilities on lockdown after gunshots rang out. There were reportedly two suspect running away from the scene, according to witness statements obtained by police.
Sen. Charlie Bethel (R-Dalton) happened to be in the hospital during the confusion, The Atlanta Journal- Constitution reports.
Bethel told the Atlanta Journal- Constitution he was there to visit his “brother and sister-in-law.”
“My wife’s family had baby today at Northside Women’s Center – and as we arrived, there was a disturbance in the parking lot,” he said.
“As we entered the hospital, we were escorted to an empty patient room with other visitors,” he said. “Another family said that as they were beginning to leave, they heard shots and were hurried back into the hospital.”
Rapper Webbie wrote from his official Twitter account, “RIP TO MY LIL BROTHER PHAT! LIFE SO F**KED UP! TRILL4LIFE.”
Our condolences are with Vernell’s family during this trying time.
