Through the course of the investigation, Homicide Detectives determined that suspect Kewon Dontrell White, a 21-year old Black male, was responsible for killing the victim. On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, suspect White was arrested and taken into federal custody for Prohibited Person in Possession of a Firearm. He is also facing a murder charge.

The blog shared a Scribd image of the official charging papers filed in court, showing that a warrant went out for White’s arrest.
White allegedly carried out the brazen daylight murder of Mo3 on northbound Interstate 35 after giving chase. Mo3, real name Melvin Noble, crashed his vehicle attempting to flee the late model Chevy Camaro that tailed him and was ran down by the suspect and shot dead just before noon local time.
While there was some speculation that Mo3 was set up by a woman whose home he left just prior to the incident, that same woman expressed grief and sorrow over the rapper’s loss.
