DETROT MAN KILLED IN RAP BATTLE
DETROIT -- Police are looking for a Westland man who killed a rapper this week after taking offense to something said during a rap contest.
The incident happened Monday in a home located in the 180000 block of Bradford on the city's east side. Police say there was a rap battle, in which participants come up with insulting rhymes aimed at their competitors.
Police say 28-year-old Antoine Tramble became angry at something a 27-year-old rapper said, so he left the home and then returned with a gun. Tramble opened fire, killing the man, police said. The victim's name has not been released.
Tramble then fled the home and escaped in a blue conversion van, investigators said.
Anyone with information is being asked to contact Detroit Police Homicide at (313) 596-2260; or the anonymous Crime Stoppers hot line at (800) SPEAK-UP.
