ATLANTA (AP) — A man charged with killing an Atlanta rapper at a recording studio has turned himself in to police.

WSB-TV reports that Vinson Hardimon, known as rapper Yung Vito, surrendered to Atlanta police Monday afternoon. He was handcuffed and taken to the Fulton County jail.

Police say the 28-year-old shot and killed 24-year-old Mario Hamilton, known as rapper Slim Dunkin, on Dec. 16 at an Atlanta recording studio.

Detective David Quinn says police still need more information in the case. Quinn says Hardimon’s attorney called police and said Hardimon wanted to surrender.
