ABN Members Dinky D, Poppa C Dead In Trae Tha Truth Shooting

By Maurice Bobb

While the Houston Police Department hasn’t yet confirmed the identities of the victims involved in the shooting that resulted in rapper Trae Tha Truth being hit by gunfire early Wednesday morning, veteran H-Town MCs, Bun B and Slim Thug, took to Twitter to express their sadness over the loss of Assholes by Nature members Dinky D and Poppa C, both pronounced dead at the scene of the former Scores Cabaret located in Southwest Houston:

“RIP Dinky D and Poppa c,” Bun B wrote, while Slim Thug added, “Im just waking up hearing all this, we was all together yesterday prayers out to the whole #ABN I can’t believe Dinky died #RIPDinky”
MTV News reported earlier that the rapper, born Frazier Thompson III, was shot and treated for his wound at a Houston area hospital, while another unnamed survivor was also treated and released and is currently being interviewed by HPD homicide.

HPD spokesman Victor Senties told MTV News that at this time, no arrests have been made and that though hundreds of witnesses were on the scene, they are not coming forward with details on the shooting. HPD is asking that witnesses volunteer firsthand details of the shooting to assist in their investigation.

According to Senties, HPD received a 911 call at 3:15 a.m. this morning reporting that there was a shooting in progress. Officers were quickly dispatched to the scene.

This tragedy comes just six months after the Grand Hustle signee’s close ABN friend and right hand man, Money Clip D, was gunned down at Breakers night club, which is a stone’s throw from Scores. Many believe the two shooting incidents are somehow related.
