DaBaby’s Artist Wisdom Arrested On Attempted Murder Charge In Miami Beach Shooting

Following a violent weekend in Miami, it looks like cops have the person they want in custody for a shooting that occurred on Memorial Day near Prime 112 and he’s a rapper that happens to be connected to DaBaby.

On Tuesday, we reported DaBaby was questioned and released without any charges related to his alleged involvement in the Miami Beach shooting that left two people injured. On Wednesday, however, it was revealed that DaBaby’s artist Wisdom Awute was allegedly the man police wanted.

According to the Miami Herald, Wisdom is facing multiple charges that include attempted murder in relation to the shooting.

Wisdom’s arrest came shortly after DaBaby was released. Erenesto Rodriguez, Miami Beach police spokesman said: “In less than 24 hours, Miami Beach detectives were able to ensure those responsible for the shooting were arrested and charged.” 

Another man by the name of Christopher Urena was also arrested, but there’s no word on what or if there is a connection to DaBaby.

“We will now work closely with the State Attorney’s Office to ensure a successful prosecution,” Rodriguez said.

Miami Beach Fire Rescue transported the two shooting victims to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Unit. One of the victims was shot in the shoulder and the other in the leg. 

One of the victims remained in critical condition Tuesday while the other was released after being treated at the hospital. Their names were not released to the public.

According to a police report on Wisdom, two men were trying to get in their car at around 11:20 p.m. Monday in front of the restaurant when they got in a fight with “a famous musical entourage.” That’s when Wisdom allegedly pulled out a gun, the victim told police. Wisdom then shot one of the two men in the right calf, according to police. 

The victim was able to identify Wisdom as the shooter, police said in the report.

The shooting in South Beach rounded off a violent Memorial Day weekend in Miami-Dade County, during which at least six people were killed and dozens were injured by gunfire.
