Florida rapper, Ace NH born as Billy Bennett Adams III, has been arrested after being accused of killing two men after a studio session. According to authorities, Adams murdered the men after working on music with them in Lutz, Florida (an area around 15 miles north of Tampa).
After shooting the two men when the recording session was over he evaded arrest for two days. Adams would be charged with two counts of premeditated first-degree murder with a firearm and one count of armed burglary of a structure.
Motive for the murder is currently under investigation. Authorities believe that the crime is gang related being that Adams and one of the victims identify as Crip gang members. Sheriff Chad Chronister stated, “This was a violent execution this suspect performed, and although the attack was clearly targeted, we will not allow gang-related disputes to disrupt the comfort and safety of innocent residents in any of our communities. Our deputies responded to the crime scene in less than five minutes the night of the murders, and due to their diligent work around the clock to solve this case, detectives arrested the suspect responsible in less than 48 hours.” He would go on to state, “It is clear that this suspect had no regard for human life, and now he will face the consequences for his actions.”
Ace NH is currently being held without bond.
