Rae Sremmurd’s 19-year-old half-brother Michael Sullivan has been arrested for the murder of the hip-hop duo’s stepfather.
According to Tupelo local station WTVA, Sullivan pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday (Jan. 8). He was accused of shooting and killing his father, Floyd Sullivan, on Monday in their home. Sullivan was placed in a mental health facility before he was released on Tuesday and arrested for first-degree murder.
“Mrs. Shelton and I and the City of Tupelo are appreciative of Rae Sremmurd’s continuous community support,” Tupelo mayor Jason Shelton said of Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s Mississippi ties following the news of Floyd’s death. “Please know that we and the community you love and call home grieve with you, are praying for you, and extend our deepest condolences to you, your entire family, and friends during this difficult time.”
