Local rappers believed responsible for hotel murder

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County police now think a murder at a Duluth motel is the result of a rivalry between two rap groups.

Recently released surveillance video shows two men walking through the hallway of the Quality Inn where the crime took place. Minutes later, the same two men are seen running in the opposite direction, their guns still in plain sight.

Cpl. Deon Washington of the Gwinnett County Police Department said "when you become a victim of a crime like this, there's no glory, there's no stardom for what these guys are rapping about. This is reality. Someone lost a life."

The victim, 23-year-old Paris Brown, was one of about 30 people gathered to celebrate Gwinnett County based rap group "Migos."

According to Cpl. Washington, the rival group "2G"  came to the party and began shooting into the crowd, killing Brown -- an innocent bystander.

"There's a difference between sheer entertainment and actual reality." Washington said.

Gwinnett County authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Corey Marzette, an affiliate of the rap group "2G."

Police believe witnesses have refused to cooperate with authorities in an effort to protect their "street credibility."

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Marzette or anyone else involved in this shooting is being encouraged to call Gwinnett County Police or 911.
