Rae Sremmurd's Stepfather Killed in Shooting, Brother in Custody
The stepfather of Rae Sremmurd has been killed in a shooting in Mississippi.
On Monday night, the Tupelo Police Department was dispatched to a home where officers discovered a 62-year-old man. The victim, identified as Floyd Sullivan, died on the scene from at least a couple gunshot wounds.
According to TMZ, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s younger half-brother, Michael Sullivan, has been taken into custody. The 19-year-old has been called a person of interest in the shooting and is being held for psychiatric evaluation.
Floyd helped raise Swae and Jxmmi since they moved to Mississippi with their mother, Bernadette. He also had a son, Floyd Jr., from a previous relationship.
No one else is currently being sought in connection with the killing. Swae Lee posted a broken-heart emoji on his Instagram Story on Monday evening, but it’s unclear if he was responding to the news.
