Hurricane Chris catches an early break in the shooting test

Hurricane Chris has gotten a break in his upcoming shooting spree after the judge allowed a forensic expert to testify on the rapper’s behalf.

In June 2020, “A Bay Bay” rapper (real name Chris Dooley) arrested after fatally shooting man who allegedly tried to steal his car (which turned out to be stolen) outside a convenience store in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Officers who were called to the scene discovered a man with gunshot wounds to the chest, hip and abdomen. The man was taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. The rapper claimed he fired in self-defense — something officers denied after gas station security footage allegedly showed otherwise.

Hurricane Chris, who was also charged with unlawful possession of the stolen 2016 Mercedes Sedan, is due in court on February 1 for an arraignment and hearing date, with the main trial is due to start on February 13.

On Wednesday (Jan. 18), after appearing at a court hearing for Chris, Shreveport native attorney Alex Washington shared some new details from the case with The shadow room.

According to Washington, a judge ruled that forensic analysis experts would be able to testify on behalf of the rapper and support his claims that the June 2020 fatal shooting was in self-defense

“Hurricane Chris’ actions were in self-defense and justified,” Washington said in a statement. “Today the court decided to allow our forensic analysis expert to testify at trial.

“He will allow the other expert to testify when we provide a written report to the state. Both experts will help prove that Hurricane Chris’s actions were reasonable and justified. The February 1 date will clear up any little issues.”

Chris has been out on bond since sending the $500,000 just two days after his arrest. He has maintained his innocence and claims his “name will be cleared.”

“Hello world, hello world, hello world,” he said in a video after announcing the bond. “I’m sure you’ve got the news by now. I was involved in a very unfortunate incident on Friday morning, a very unfortunate incident. I want to thank everyone who has prayed for the family of the deceased and everyone who has prayed for my family.

“After a good and thorough investigation, my name will be cleared. Let God work, watch God work. God bless. Thank you.”
