Rapper Snootie Wild was shot in the neck and killed in Houston on Friday when an argument with another driver exploded into violence after he accidentally backed his car into a ditch.

The 36-year-old Memphis rapper, who’s real name is LePreston Porter, was initially said to be in critical condition after being found shot in his SUV in a ditch on Friday in Houston, and was given a 50/50 chance of survival, according to authorities.

‘It looks like he backed in there (the ditch) accidentally. Then the other vehicle pulled up, and folks got out of the car,’ Officer R. Willkens said.

‘They were talking for a little bit, and then all of a sudden, gunfire went off. Only one shot, actually.’

The sequence of events that let to Wild’s death remains unclear, including whether those who killed him had been looking for him, or if the murder was a random argument that spiraled out of control.

Authorities are currently looking for a man and woman who are believed to be suspects in the fatal shooting.

Police added that there is a high possibility the two suspects are still in the area where the rapper’s body and SUV was found.
