Crips gang rapper, Ace NH has been arrested for allegedly killing two men after recording music with them in his makeshift studio in Florida.
The rapper, whose real name is Billy Bennett Adams III, was arrested on Saturday by deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s and charged with two counts of premeditated first-degree murder, cops said.
Ace and one of the victims both self-identify as being part of the “Crips” gang.
Sheriff Chad Chronister described the incident as a “violent execution” and said the shooting is believed to be a gang-related feud.
“This was a violent execution this suspect performed, and although the attack was clearly targeted, we will not allow gang-related disputes to disrupt the comfort and safety of innocent residents in any of our communities,” he said.
The Crips gang rapper, 23, allegedly arrived at the studio earlier in the evening on Thursday Thursday, November 19, with his two victims. After he finished recording his music, he shot the two men to death and then fled the scene in his car, cops said.
Police said deputies received a call about a reported shooting and arrived at the home in Lutz, where they found the two men dead inside of the shed being used as a “makeshift” studio in the backyard.
Cops found and arrested Adams on Saturday, November 21. He was booked at the Orient Road Jail.
