UPDATE:

WINNFIELD, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Police are still trying to determine why an up-and-coming rap artist from Jonesboro was murdered early Thursday in Winnfield.

I woke up this morning and I lost a great friend. He was a rapper, he inspired many kids to live out their dream, said Nikki Morris.

Although Lil Snupe was a celebrity and well known in the community, 14-year-old Sedarian Joe knew Addarren Ross as his older brother.

"I really loved my brother man. it shocked me this morning when my momma came and told me. I really couldn't believe it at first. it just hurt my heart real bad whenever she told me. For his momma I really feel bad for her because can't nobody feel the pain like she can," said Sedarian Joe.
