LOS ANGELES – The son of R&B singer Chaka Khan (search) has been arrested for investigation of murder, police said Monday.
Damien Patrick Holland (search), 25, was arrested shortly after the Friday night shooting of an 18-year-old man, police Sgt. Catherine Plows said.
Holland and the victim were fighting and both struggled to control a gun, which fired and struck the teen, police said. The victim died at a nearby hospital.
Holland was booked for investigation of first-degree murder and remained in custody on $1 million bail. Prosecutors had not been handed the case but an arraignment was likely Tuesday, according to the district attorney's office.
The victim's identity was being withheld until his relatives could be notified.
A publicist for Khan, 51, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
Khan is known for hits such as "Tell Me Something Good" and "I Feel For You." The R&B diva performed in August with rapper Kanye West (search) at the MTV Video Music Awards.
