Cops Issue Warrant for Suspected Killer of Rapper Slim Dunkin

Cops issued an arrest warrant for the suspected killer of rapper Slim Dunkin who was shot dead at an Atlanta music studio exactly a week ago.

The Atlanta Police Homicide Unit are urging suspect Vinson Hardimon, a 28-year-old rapper known as Young Vito, to turn himself in as they have "reason to believe he may be in danger," WAGA-TV reported.

Dunkin, whose real name was Mario Hamilton, was shot and killed outside an Atlanta music studio, where he was shooting a music video, last Friday.

It is thought he became involved in "a verbal altercation" with another individual who then shot him, Atlanta Police Department spokesman Maj. Keith Meadows said.

A source on the scene said the rapper and the suspect were allegedly arguing over a piece of candy.

His funeral will take place at the Berean Christian Church, Atlanta at 11:00 a.m. local time Friday.

Fellow Atlanta rappers Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane will foot most of the bill for a lavish funeral for Dunkin, TMZ reported Thursday.

They are paying for a white horse drawn carriage, a dove release ceremony and huge floral arrangements, a rep for the rappers told the gossip site.
