Rapper DaBaby will face no charges after a trespasser was shot and killed on his $2.3 million property in North Carolina last month, police said.
The Troutman Police Department released a statement on Facebook on Thursday, announcing that the investigation was “completed and closed.”
“Investigators have consulted with the Iredell County District Attorney’s Office and no criminal charges will be filed at this time,” the statement concluded.
Representatives for DaBaby did not immediately respond to the Post’s request for comment.
Last month, officials responded to the incident, where they “found a subject with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.”
The rapper, 30, was at home in his sprawling 11,200 square foot estate on April 14 when a man broke in around 7:45 p.m.
DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, shot the intruder in the leg after the two words were exchanged, sources told TMZ at the time.
Police said at the time that “a person with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound” was taken to a local medical facility for treatment.
DaBaby has faced his fair share of controversial incidents over the past year.
Last month, the rapper was the subject of a viral video after he was filmed fighting with his own record label, rapper Wisdom.
The pair appeared to graze each other with their punches before the fight was quickly broadcast by their entourage.
Just two weeks prior, the rapper found himself in the middle of yet another controversy after he appeared to force an indifferent fan into kissing him.
Video showed the artist approaching a group of fans outside a venue, hugging a few before grabbing a woman’s head in an effort to pull her towards his at least twice to lock lips. The fan backed away, resisting the shocked-looking MC.
In December, DaBaby breathed a sigh of relief when her Las Vegas battery case was dismissed with prejudice after she was ordered to pay the alleged victim $7,500 in restitution.
Just a month prior, the rapper allegedly called the police about his baby mama, DaniLeigh, in a desperate bid to kick her off her property, in an unrelated incident.
Most famously, DaBaby sparked mass furor in July last year with his famous homophobic rant.
