Archie Eversole died after reportedly suffering a gunshot wound to the face while he slept.
The Atlanta rapper died on April 3, after being shot a week prior by his brother, Alexander Krause, cops say. According to a new report released by TMZ on Thursday (April 21), Eversole was shot in the jaw.
The ‘We Ready” rapper, who was discovered at a gas station near his home, reportedly told police he was sleeping on the night of the incident when someone kicked in his door, and he was jolted awake by a bullet hitting him in the face. He could not identify the shooter. He reportedly gestured that the gunman was still in the home when asked by police. He then began to fade in and out of consciousness.
At the scene, cops reportedly discovered the busted down door and Eversole’s blood-stained bed as well as a blood trail leading up the steps to his room. They also noticed blood on the socks of Krause, who initially told them he was just checking on his brother.
When news first broke that Eversole hasdbeen shot and killed, the DeKalb County Police Department in Georgia released the following statement: “On March 25, 2022, Officers responded to the Chevron at 4410 Snapfinger Woods Drive in reference to a person shot. Upon arrival, they located the victim suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries on April 3, 2022.

The suspect is currently in the DeKalb County Jail for Murder. The victim has been identified as Arthur Eversole and the suspect identified as Alexander Kraus.”
