DaBaby‘s legal team says folks are wrong for jumping to conclusions over a recently surfaced video of the rapper shooting and killing a man at a Walmart … they say it actually supports the rapper’s defense.
Here’s the deal … Rolling Stone published surveillance footage Sunday from the 2018 fatal shooting in North Carolina, and the article appeared to question DaBaby’s self-defense narrative.
DaBaby shot and killed 19-year-old Jaylin Craig in 2018, a shooting the rapper claims was in self-defense.
DaBaby’s lawyers, Drew Findling and Marissa Goldberg, tell TMZ … the video was reviewed by prosecutors back in 2018 … and they concluded DaBaby acted in self-defense and therefore was not prosecuted for homicide.
We were told that the video was viewed by a Mecklenburg County Judge in connection to a misdemeanor case for not having the proper permits for the gun.
As for self-defense, DaBaby said that the victim and another accomplice were following DaBaby around the Walmart store and allegedly threatened him with a gun and flashed it at him… making him feel the need to defend himself.
The attorney for the rapper tells us that witnesses were interviewed and confirmed Mr. Kirk’s statements. The entire surveillance video was viewed and verified to confirm Mr. Kirk’s statements. “
