Chaka Zulu was arrested this week and later released on bond
Ludacris' manager Chaka Zulu has been slapped with murder charges in June shooting that took the life of a 23-year old man, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The music executive surrendered himself to the authorities this week and was charged with murder, aggravated assault, simple battery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was released on a $200,000 bond.
According to Zulu's legal defence, the 52-year old had been attacked by a gang of four and was forced to draw his firearm in self defense. The incident happened at a Buckhead shopping center parking lot on the 2200 block of Peachtree Road.
“Mr. Zulu was attacked and jumped from behind by a gang of at least four (4) individuals (sadly including the decedent) and was forced to defend himself after this gang repeatedly stomped, punched, and kicked him while he was on the ground in a defenseless posture,” read a statement from Zulu's lawyer Gabe Banks on Saturday.
