Many of us were wondering how this story would pan out.
Last November, North Carolina rapper, Da Baby was involved in a shooting in a Walmart in Huntersville, NC, that left 19-year-old Jalyn Craig dead. Da Baby maintained that the shooting was a result of self-defense after the men approached him while he was shopping with his family. Four people were arrested that night, but Da Baby was the only person charged.
His charge of carrying a concealed gun has now been dropped. In court on Thursday, prosecutors made a motion to continue the case against Da Baby, real name Jonathan Kirk, “because a key civilian witness was unavailable,” but the motion was denied, according to DA’s Office spokeswoman Meghan McDonald.
“Without that witness, the State could not proceed, and as a result, dismissed the charge,” McDonald told the Charlotte Observer in an email.
