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.

Family and friends spent today turning the crime scene at the Maplewood Apartment complex into a memorial in honor of rapper Lil Snupe who Winnfield police say was shot twice in the chest and died where flowers and balloons now fly.

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.

Lil Snupe loved music and he was in town to perform for a concert tomorrow in Farmerville

"He was signed with meek mills record label Dreamchasers," said DJ Star.

DJ Star mentored Lil Snupe and was like an older brother. He says Lil Snupe was a rising star in the rap world.

"He was really on his way, big time and doing a lot for the state of Louisiana that people probably didn't understand on the music level," said DJ Star.
