A Florida rapper was allegedly caught on camera fatally shooting her manager following a fight, then getting hit by a car.
Kevhani Camilla Hicks, 27, faces second-degree murder charges for the Oct. 9 shooting in front of the Wynwood Walls, a street art museum in Miami.
Video obtained by WTVJ shows a woman police identified as Hicks gunning down the victim, then getting run over by a white sedan as she tried to flee the scene.

Before that, footage shows Hicks and another man arguing outside of a white car before things get physical. That’s when another person, said to be her manager, gets out of the car and helps the man attack Hicks.
Video shows the rapper getting slammed to the ground before all three get up.
Hicks walks in the opposite direction before she pulls a guns out of her bag and begins firing, hitting her manager.
The footage shows the other man hopping into the car and striking Hicks, then fleeing the scene. The video shows Hicks getting up and running away.
When police arrived at the scene, they found the victim on the ground and Hicks nearby suffering from blunt-force injuries. Both were taken to a nearby trauma centre, where the man died from his injuries.
“We know that based on her statement that the victim in this case is her manager and she says that she’s a singer,” Miami police spokesperson Michael Vega told the outlet. “But we don’t know what led to this argument.”
According to the police report, “The defendant stated she was in fear due to the victim’s size and upon hearing the victim yell, ‘I’ll kill you with one hit.’”
Hicks said she believed the victim was preparing to lunge at her when she began shooting, maintaining that she feared for her life.
She has pleaded not guilty and her public defender said it is a “clear case of self-defence.”
Hicks was initially denied bond at an October hearing, but was granted a $50,000 bond plus house arrest earlier this month.
Hicks took to social media to thank her fans and supporters.
“I’m finally home after experiencing something so traumatic and life changing,” she posted on Instagram on Monday.
“I have 3 broken ribs and bruises all over so I’m currently healing and getting rest. I just want to personally thank everyone who supports me and knows that I’m not the horrible person some are claiming that I am.”
