Hurricane Chris, whose real name is Christopher Dooley, had been on trial since March 8 for the shooting of Danzeria Farris Jr. during a disagreement at a gas station in Louisiana. The rapper had pleaded not guilty to the charges of second-degree murder and possession of a stolen vehicle.

The trial, which lasted several days, included testimony from eyewitnesses and experts who analyzed the crime scene. The prosecution argued that Hurricane Chris had intentionally killed Farris, while the defence argued that he acted in self-defence.

After closing arguments on March 14, the jury deliberated for several hours before finding Hurricane Chris not guilty on all counts. The rapper released a statement expressing gratitude to his family, supporters, and legal team for their unwavering support throughout the trial.

This situation drained me and affected my health greatly,” Hurricane Chris said in his statement. “Now I can hug my son and think about raising him to be a man. Thanks to everyone who wished me well.”

The rapper had faced a potential life sentence if convicted, but now he can put the legal battle behind him and focus on his music career. Hurricane Chris is best known for his 2009 hit single “A Bay Bay” and has released several albums over the years.

However, Hurricane Chris’ legal troubles may not be over just yet. In 2020, he was also arrested for second-degree battery and aggravated assault after an altercation with a man at a gas station. The outcome of that case is still pending.
