ATLANTA – Rapper Ludacris’ manager is facing a murder charge in connection with a June shooting.

The Atlanta Police Department said Chaka Zulu, whose legal name is Ahmed Obafemi, turned himself in to face charges Tuesday. Fulton Country jail records show he was released on bail the same day. Police said they also secured warrants charging him with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and simple battery.

Gabe Banks of Banks Weaver LLC, a lawyer for the longtime music executive, shared a statement with The Associated Press expressing disappointment in the decision to bring charges. Banks said evidence clearly shows Zulu, who was wounded in the incident, defended himself while being attacked.

Zulu was among three people shot in the June 26 gunfire at a parking lot outside of the restaurant APT 4B in the Buckhead area. One person died.
