Things aren’t looking too good for the rapper these days.
Earlier this month, YNW Melly was arrested in connection to the double murder of his friends YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. Now according to a local news website, the rapper could also have something to do with the shooting death of a police officer. Prior to his first arrest, the rapper posted a message to his fans on Instagram before turning himself in.

As of today, Melly is also now being considered a suspect in the 2017 murder of deputy Gary Chambliss. A source revealed that both YNW Melly and YNW Bortlen were present at the scene during the time of the officer’s shooting. Allegedly the “Mixed Personalities” rapper was standing with a group and firing bullets when officer Chambliss was struck and killed. Authorities currently believe either Melly or Bortlen were responsible.
