Hurricane Chris will reportedly be heading to court next month for the trial relating to his second-degree murder charge stemming from a June 2020 incident.

According to a report from The Shade Room, a February 13 date was confirmed in court on Tuesday (January 17). Ahead of the trial, Chris will also appear in court on February 1 for an argument and hearing date.


The “A Bay Bay” rapper (real name Chris Dooley) was arrested after fatally shooting a man who allegedly tried to steal his car (which turned out to be stolen) outside of a convenience store in Shreveport, Louisiana. The officers who were called to the scene discovered a man with gunshot wounds to the chest, hip and stomach. The man was rushed to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

The rapper was also charged with illegal possession of the stolen 2016 Mercedes Sedan.

Chris has been out on bond since posting the $500,000 just two days after his arrest. He has maintained his innocence and asserts that his “name will be cleared.”

“Hello world, hello world, hello world,” he said in a video after posting bond. “I’m sure you got the news by now. I was involved in a very unfortunate incident on Friday morning, a very unfortunate incident. I wanna thank everybody who’s been praying for the family of the deceased and everybody who’s been praying for my family.

“After a good, thorough investigation, my name will be cleared,” he continued. “Let God work, watch God work. God bless. Thank you.”

The Shreveport native claims he was acting in self-defense, but investigators determined video footage of the incident doesn’t support that theory. They also learned the vehicle the deceased victim was allegedly attempting to steal was reported stolen out of Texas.
