Slim Dunkin was shot and killed in Atlanta Friday night.

According to Atlanta police, the rising star in the rap world was shot once in the chest with a handgun at around 5:30 p.m in a recording studio where he was preparing to make a video.

“Before the video shoot took place, it appears the victim and suspect got involved in a verbal altercation,” Atlanta Police Maj. Keith Meadows told the Associated Press. “We don’t know what that altercation was about.”
