Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci, who was wanted for murder in connection to a shooting, has turned himself in. The star, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, is being held at Fulton County jail.

Bennett, 29, is facing charges of aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm, all related to a shootout that occurred in the city on December 10.

The day before he surrendered, he took to Twitter to release a new music video for his track "Rolled On," which featured fellow rapper Mozzy. While some fans were excited about the release, others warned Bennett that he was being sought after by the cops.

Shortly after, 32-year-old Kevin Wright arrived at a fire station with a gunshot wound to his stomach, and survived. Investigators then pieced together that the two crimes were related.

Aside from Bennett, two other suspects were arrested in Miami.

"The presumption of innocence is a fundamental constitutional right for every citizen. Beyond this, we have no further comment at this time," his attorney Thomas Reynolds stated.
