Authorities have charged two suspects in the Sept. 26, 2013 shooting death of rising Chicago rapper L’A Capone.
Michael Mays, 21, and 17-year-old Sakhee Hardy-Johnson were charged with first-degree murder. Cook County Circuit Judge Laura Sullivan ordered Mays held on $500,000 bail and Hardy-Johnson held on $350,000 bail.
Mays and Hardy-Johnson allegedly confessed to the crime, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The alleged rival gang members had an ongoing dispute with Capone, Assistant State’s Attorney Alex Molesky said in court, according to the Tribune.
Capone, born Leonard Anderson, was shot in the right thigh and lower back following a recording session at a South Shore studio. He was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He was 17.
Anderson was a burgeoning rap artist whose viral hit songs include, “Play For Keeps,” “Round Here,” “Shooters,” “Murder,” “The Gat” and “So Loud.”
