Antoine Edwards, 31, was booked and charged with second-degree murder in the July 31 shooting that claimed the lives of Joshua, 31, and Ryan “Rudy” Johnson, 24. The two men were discovered in a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox riddled with multiple gun shots outside of a New Orleans residence.
Multiple tipsters informed investigators that the culprit went by the nickname “Toine” or “Tweezy,” and in one instance self-identified himself as the shooter.
According to the outlet, Edwards was only formally charged with one count of second-degree murder. Multiple inquires to the NOPD regarding the charges went unanswered, the website reports.
An arrest warrant obtained by NOLA.com says Edwards was “in the area during the time the incident occurred and as the subject who produced a firearm and shot the victims in this incident.”
Edwards’ bond was set at $500,000 and a second court date is scheduled for May 7.
Wright, who forged a successful business career for herself outside of her past marriage to childhood sweetheart and rapper Lil’ Wayne, was rightfully heartbroken when news of the shootings made national headlines over the summer.
Celebrity friends and fans offered an outpouring of support to Wright and her family during the difficult weeks that followed. Wright still uses her social media accounts to honor the special memories she shared with her brothers throughout the years.
