A Florida rapper faces murder charges after she allegedly gunned down her manager in the middle of the street — a killing which was caught in startling security footage, according to police.
Kevhani Camilla Hicks, 27, who goes by Key Vhani onstage, was filmed shooting her manager multiple times on Oct. 9 in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami after he and another man accosted her on the street.
In footage obtained by NBC Miami, Hicks was seen stepping out of a white car with her manager before the two appeared to get into an argument and began hitting each other.
Another man then climbed out of a rear door and joined the melee against Hicks, and the two finally threw her to the ground and pinned her there.
After they relented, Hicks walked away from the pair then suddenly turned and drew a handgun from her bag and opened fire.
Her manager dove to the ground a scrambled for cover behind a car, but Hicks pursued him into the street while continuing to shoot until he was left sprawled and wounded on the ground.
At that moment, the second man who’d attacked Hicks jumped into their car and pulled out, ramming into her and apparently running her over.
He then sped off in the car, and Hicks stood and ran down the sidewalk out of view.
Responding cops found the manager with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a hospital but later died.
Hicks, who was hospitalized with blunt-force injuries, told police the shooting was an act of self defense and that she had feared for her life.
“The defendant stated she was in fear due to the victim’s size and upon hearing the victim yell ‘I’ll kill you with one hit,’” a police report from the incident read, according to NBC Miami.
A GoFundMe set up for Hicks by an apparent family member alleged the two men in the video have “assaulted her multiple times.”
The rapper was placed in custody, but is expected to be released after a judge granted her $50,000 bond and house arrest in a recent hearing.
An attorney for Hicks called the incident a “clear case of self-defense.”
