Sadly, police have confirmed Slim and Swae's half-brother has officially been accused of committing the crime. Tupelo Police reported that Michael Jamil Ali Sullivan was released from a psychological care facility and taken into custody at Lee County Sheriff's Department and arrested. The 19-year old will be charged with his father's murder and authorities aren't looking for any other suspects. Earlier this week Tupelo's WTVA reported the following,

Now it's a matter of understanding what made Michael do, what he did. It's not clear if there was a beef between Michael and his dad prior to the shooting or not. As more details surrounding the motive of this tragedy are revealed, we'll bring those facts to you. The rap duo whose real names are,
Aaquil Iben Shamon Brown and
Khalif Malik Shamon Brown were close to their stepdad. As the rap stars expressed on social media, they are heartbroken.

Floyd raised them as his own after starting a relationship with their mom when they were in middle school. Equally devastated by the loss is Floyd Jr. , his son from a previous relationship. Meanwhile, Rae Sremmurd released an official statement via their publicist, Juel Stanley:

"At this time on behalf of Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee, we’d like to continue to keep the family in our prayers at such a delicate time," The groups rep said. "Both Slim and Swae Lee are deeply saddened by the death of their stepfather but are thankful for the love and support from him throughout the years of their upbringing."

Stanley continued, "Though his untimely death has come at such a surprise, we ask that the public just keep the family in great prayer and respect their privacy at this time."

We offer them our heartfelt condolences.
