The Atlanta Police Department say two other individuals were also shot, in which one of them died. Zulu was later identified as a suspect in the killing. The music execute turned himself in shortly after and was released on a $200,00 bond that same day.

Chaka is now facing murder, aggravated assault, and simple battery charges stemming from the shooting.

A surveillance video is also circulated on social media, seeming to show the moments leading to shots being fired.

The video link was sent to both the Atlanta Police Department, as well as Zulu’s lawyers, Gabe Banks, to confirm if the video was real and indeed from that night and if there are any missing portions.

In an email communication, Banks wrote, “Based upon the information that I have to date, the video footage in the link you provided via email is accurate.”

In a statement, the attorney claimed the shooting was in self-defense after his client was ambushed.

“Mr. Zulu was at his place of business that night and had every right to defend himself. In an attempt to save his life, Mr. Zulu lawfully discharged his weapon in self-defense; a weapon that he is licensed to carry,” the statement read. “Mr. Zulu fully cooperated with law enforcement officials and their investigation, and voluntarily turned himself in once he learned of the arrest warrants. Mr. Zulu remains confident that his name will be cleared of all charges through the judicial process.”

Chaka Zulu is well known as manager to hip-hop superstar Ludacris. His record label, Disturbing Tha Peace Records, now a subsidiary of Def Jam, has represented artists including Chingy, Bobby Valentino, Young Jeezy, Swizz Beatz, Big K.R.I.T. and Childish Major.
