MO3 Murder Suspect Indicted by Dallas Grand Jury
The man accused of gunning down Texas hip-hop artist MO3 in broad daylight back on November 11, 2020 was recently indicted by a grand jury in Dallas County.
Kewon Dontrell White was arrested in connection to the shooting on December 9, 2020. Police say White fatally shot MO3 (whose legal name was Melvin A. Noble) on I-35 in Dallas. White is charged with murder, plus illegal possession of a firearm by a felon.
After an investigation aided by expressway cameras and statements from witnesses, White was arrested and charged with murder.
Details from the affidavit show Noble was driving on I-35 around 11:59 am on November 11th when 21-year-old Dontrell White exited his vehicle and shot Noble. White then fled the scene in his car. Noble was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to The Dallas Morning News, White could face up to life in prison.
MO3 was a powerful force in Texas Hip-Hop, signed to Epic Records in 2017, and was enjoying upward momentum at the time of his death. His 2019 collaboration with Boosie Badazz, Errybody (Remix), was a critical hit.
He was reportedly working on new music when he was murdered, and his manager told Spectrum News that MO3 touched on the topics of God and death in his latest recordings. If anything, that idea just adds to the tragedy and the eeriness of the rapper's untimely death.
Hopefully we'll get more details about a motive as White goes to trial, but ultimately there's just no sense in what happened.
