Authorities in Las Vegas said a 25-year-old man linked to a fatal shooting incident in 2021 rapped about killing the victim in a song that he recently released, an arrest report made available on Tuesday revealed, per Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The suspect, identified as Kenjuan McDaniel, also shot a music video for the song. The victim McDaniel allegedly admitted to killing in the song was identified as 32-year-old Randall Wallace. The fatal incident occurred at an apartment complex on September 18, 2021.
On Tuesday, McDaniel was arrested and charged over Wallace’s shooting death. The song in question was posted on YouTube on July 19. Metropolitan Police Department detectives in the arrest report stated that some of the lyrics linked to the killing include: “Brought it with that fire, hear that ‘ah’, see your body twitching.”
Police also said McDaniel rapped about the killer driving to the crime scene and later opening fire on the victim while he was standing outside. McDaniel also allegedly rapped about Wallace’s friends fleeing the scene before the deadly shooting. Authorities said video evidence corroborated those lyrics as footage showed the victim’s friends fleeing before the shooting. Wallace also twitched for a long period before succumbing to his injuries.
Another lyric in McDaniel’s song was also shared by KLAS: “… parked the car, doubled back on feet, the smartest way to slide, Drove in, double lock yo man, make sure you get yo bod’, Hold your breath and make sure you calm yourself, [expletive] make sure you open your eyes …”
Police said this lyric in question painted a picture of the murder and it was information that was not made available to the public. “Kenjuan re-enacted Randall’s murder, which was consistent with evidence at the scene … referring to Randall Wallace as the ‘Midget’,” the documents stated.
Authorities also confirmed Wallace’s nickname was “Midget”, adding that the music video corroborated the outcome of their investigation. McDaniel faces murder charges and is being held at the Clark County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing for the case is set for September 14.
