News: Rapper Young Vito Surrenders To Police in Slim Dunkin Murder Case
With the police naming him as the main suspect in the murder of Atlanta rapper Slim Dunkin, Vinson Hardimon, a.k.a Young Vito, turned himself in to authorities on Monday.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the 28-year old local rapper and his attorney Derrick Wright walked in to Atlanta Police headquarters in the afternoon, ending a week long search for the man who allegedly shot Dunkin in the chest on December 16.
This is not Hardimon’s first run-in with the law. Since 2004 he has been arrested for crimes that include aggravated assault, child cruelty, and carrying an illegally concealed gun.
Slim Dunkin, born Mario Hamilton, was laid to rest on Friday in a service attended by his Brick Squad crew affiliates and close friends Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane
