According to Fox 5 Atlanta, the 28-year-old "Real Trapper" emcee (real name, Trentavious White) was attacked on Friday (March 4). The Fulton County Medical Examiner told People that Fresh later died after being rushed to a local hospital.

"Shortly after units arrived, it was learned that at least one victim was shot and was transported away from the scene in an unknown vehicle."
Over 50 shell casings were found in and outside of the studio. Although details still remain unknown, local residents tell NBC affiliate WXIA that Street Execs usually attracts trouble and violence around the neighborhood.
