Jason McWilliams Admitted To Killing T.I Artist Doe B


(CNN) — A man who police say had a dispute with Doe B has been charged with killing the rapper and a woman at an Alabama nightclub over the weekend.

Jason McWilliams, 25, turned himself in Sunday night to detectives who are investigating the shooting at the Centennial Hill Bar and Grill in Montgomery early Saturday.

Doe B, a 22-year-old Montgomery native whose real name is Glenn Thomas, and Kimbrele Johnson, a 21-year-old college student, died from gunshots, police said. Six other people were wounded.

“The circumstances surrounding the shooting were initially unknown, but further investigation indicates that the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute between McWilliams and Thomas,” a Montgomery Police news release said Monday.

A patch over Doe B’s right eye became the entertainer’s trademark after he was wounded in a previous shooting, according to Billboard magazine.

On the cover of his new album, “Baby Jesus,” a baby is pictured dressed like Doe B with the eye patch and with additional bullet wounds on the left arm.

The nightclub where Saturday’s shooting happened got a reputation with city officials after a shooting there last year, which Montgomery media reported. Back then, it was called the Rose Supper Club, but it changed its name after the violence.

“I believe it is not a matter of ‘if,’ but ‘when’ the next tragic incident occurs at this business,” Strange said. “That is unacceptable, and that is why we have ordered the business to be closed effective immediately.”

Thomas had recently been on tour.
