PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A man who was originally a person of interest in a deadly drive-by shooting is now charged with murder.
Providence police confirmed Thursday that they had arrested 23-year-old John Minaya. He’s accused of killing 22-year-old Devin Burney outside Noah Lounge on Corinth Street July 1.
According to police, officers first caught Minaya fleeing the scene of the shooting. They said Minaya sped away in a car, crashed, then tried to run. Officers tackled him, and later said they found a stolen gun in the car. Minaya was charged with having the weapon, but police said he skipped bail a couple days later and disappeared.
Police said they caught Minaya again Wednesday night leaving a recording studio on Hathaway Street in the city’s south side. He was arraigned Thursday and ordered held without bail.
Prosecutors said ballistics results linked the stolen gun Minaya had to Burney’s murder.
When you’re as dedicated to your 23 followers as this guy, you just can’t leave the recording studio behind. It’s a part of your soul.
TWELVE LIKES. This guy’s hit the big time. Underrated is right!
Meet John Minaya, aka G-Money, aka GoodMoney, aka GoodMoney Underrated. He’s all about dem hoes, dat paper, and apparently dis murder charge for a drive-by shooting that killed a 22 year old man on July 1st. The fact that cops caught him at the recording studio is friggin’ hilarious. You can take the man out of the recording studio, but you can’t take the recording studio out of the man. Maybe he can spit some sweet rhymes to his new daddy in jail.
I can’t lie, I was expecting a Bulls hat and when I didn’t see one I was disappointed and shocked.
I know what you’re thinking. When do we get to sample some sweet jams. Well unfortunately, the cat howls of GoodMoney Underrated (aka GoodMoney Incarcerated) have been taken off youtube. This is especially devastating because I was going to surprise Mr. RITS with a new lovemaking song. I guess we’ll just have to stick with Tony DeYoung’s mix tape for now.
However, you can watch this teletubby, who filmed himself rocking out with some angelic rhymes by G-Money in the background. Luckily it’s only 10 seconds long because that’s all I could take.
If that doesn’t make you want to slap some hoes and acquire some hunnits I don’t know what would.
