Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince is speaking out after bounty hunters reportedly shot and killed Walter Hutchins in Houston last week.
Fox 26 Houston reports that a group of men, who identified themselves to police as bounty hunters, were executing a warrant which resulted in the fatal shooting of the 31-year-old Hutchins on Wednesday night.
Houston Police Department Lt. R. Willkens claimed that Hutchins shot at the bounty hunters, which prompted them to act out in self defense.
“They were here looking for an individual that they did spot,” Willkens said. “They found him over here inside of a vehicle. They approached the individual; the guy that was sitting in the car. When they approached, this individual shot numerous times from inside his vehicle out toward these investigators.”
Willkens continued, “One of the investigators fired a rifle only a couple of times, which struck this male and grazed him across the top of the head. Our suspect backed up, crashed into a wall. Officers heard the shots, they were close in the area. They came and gave first aid immediately to our gunshot victim and secured the scene.”
Houston native J. Prince thinks there’s more to the story. The music executive took to Instagram over the weekend to blast the alleged bounty hunters for killing Hutchins and share alleged video of the incident.
“These are bounty hunters ambushing my family Walter down last night as he was leaving a place of business,” J. Prince wrote. “You motherfuckers better be lucky I wasn’t there because y’all look like robbers and jackers to me. As you can see this looks like a hit, you should never run up on a person like this in plain clothes and no police cars at night.”
Prince added, “Y’all never gave him a chance to know who you were without gunning him down first. We won’t allow y’all to get away with this one by changing the narrative or justify killing a man because he has a warrant for his arrest.”
