Brooklyn Rapper Arrested In Florida Parking Dispute Murder
An amateur rapper from Brooklyn was busted in a fatal parking spat while visiting Miami Beach. The dispute soon escalated to gunfire with Jeffrey Alexander, 19, shooting 30-year-old Ladarian Phillips. One of Jeffrey’s three friends was trying to parallel park a white BMW that was too big for the parking spot. The driver kept bumping into a Buick, which prompted an argument with its owner, Ladarian. A second man was also shot in the leg before the BMW took off. The car crashed and Miami Beach cops opened fire, killing one of Jeffrey’s friends. Phillips was rushed to a hospital but didn’t survive.

Police took him into custody but no charges have been filed.
