Doe B’s Shooter Arrested
Jason surrendered to the police on Dec. 29 and is now being held in Montgomery County Detention Facility, according to police. He is being questioned in the killing of Doe B, 22, as well as Kimberle Johnson, a 22-year-old Troy University student.
“The circumstances surrounding the shooting were initially unknown, but further investigation indicates that the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute between McWilliams and Thomas,” police said in a statement on Dec. 30.
The shooting that killed Doe B. and Kimberle, also injured six others, one who is in intensive care.
Doe B.’s trademark was the patch he wore over his right eye, which was reportedly from a previously shooting. The mug shot on Jason showed him also wearing a patch over his right eye.
Doe B’s management team, Blueprint Group, released the following statement to HollywoodLife.com concerning his death:
Doe B was an amazing young man, in every sense of the word. A truly talented artist, a loving father and a dedicated member of the hip hop community at large, he touched the lives of the many people who had the privilege of knowing him. The Blueprint Group offers our condolences to our Doe B label partners Interscope / Hustle Gang, his management DJ Frank White and Brooklyn Knights, and most of all his family, friends and fans at this very difficult time. We ask that you remember him not by his untimely death, but by his love of life and the music he left behind.
We are so sad for Doe B’s family, as he had two children and a third on the way. Our thoughts go out to each and everyone of them.
