Less than 72 hours after the fatal shooting of rapper Doe B and a female college student in Alabama, reports claim a suspect has been arrested.
The 25-year-old suspect received multiple charges after turning himself over to authorites on Sunday (December 29).
Montgomery police charged Jason McWilliams, 25, with two counts of capital murder in connection with the slayings of Glenn Thomas, 22, and Kimberle Johnson, 21, at Centennial Hill Bar and Grill. McWilliams turned himself in late Sunday night, police said. Thomas was a rapper known as Doe B while Johnson was a student studying social work at Troy University, about 50 miles south of here.

Over the weekend, manager DJ Frank White said he believed Doe B was likely targeted in the fatal attack.
White is a local radio personality at 97.9 JAMZ and Thomas' manager. "He was a great guy, a fun guy and a very humble person," White said. White believes Kimberle Johnson was an innocent bystander who had no connection to Thomas. He said he does feel Thomas, who was at the bar and grill as a patron and not a performer, was targeted in the shooting. "I don't believe this was random," White said. "A lot of people don't want to see others succeed." (Montgomery Advertiser)
Management company Blueprint Group issued a statement on the Alabama rapper's death over the weekend.
"Doe B was an amazing young man, in every sense of the word," the statement reads. "A truly talented artist, a loving father and a dedicated member of the Hip Hop community at large, he touched the lives of the many people who had the privilege of knowing him. The Blueprint Group offers our condolences to our Doe B label partners Interscope / Hustle Gang, his management DJ Frank White and Brooklyn Knights, and most of all his family, friends and fans at this very difficult time. We ask that you remember him not by his untimely death, but by his love of life and the music he left behind." (XXL Mag)
While details were initially scarce, buzz behind Doe's tragic passing surfaced early Saturday.
