On Wednesday January 18, 2023, after appearing at a court hearing for Louisiana rapper Hurricane Chris, lawyer Alex Washington shared some new details from Hurricane Chris’ 2nd-degree murder case.

According to Washington, a judge ruled that forensic analysis experts would be able to testify on behalf of the rapper and support his claims that the June 2020 fatal shooting was in self-defense.

“Hurricane Chris’ actions were in self-defense and justified,” Washington said in a statement. “Today, the court ruled to allow our Forensic Analysis Expert to testify at trial.

“He will allow the second expert to testify once we provide a written report to the State. Both experts will assist in proving that Hurricane Chris’ actions were reasonable and justified. The February 1 date will clear up any small issues.”

In June of 2020, the Shreveport rapper, whose born name is Chris Dooley, was arrested after fatally shooting a man who allegedly tried to steal his car, which turned out to be stolen, outside of a convenience store in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The officers who were called to the scene discovered a man with gunshot wounds to the chest, hip and stomach. The man was rushed to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. The rapper claimed that he fired in self-defense — something officers dismissed after security footage from a gas station reportedly showed otherwise.

Hurricane Chris, who was also charged with illegal possession of the stolen 2016 Mercedes Sedan, is set to appear in court on February 1 for an argument and hearing date, with the main trial due to start on February 13.

Chris has always maintained his innocence stating in interviews that although the death of the victim was unfortunate, he was acting in self-defense. On January 18, 2023 as the news of the forensic analysis experts testimonies being permitted at trial to lend an advantage to a victory, Hurricane Chris posted a cryptic message to his Instagram account with the caption: Sometimes we wanna trust people more than they should be trusted I remember stepping into fire that I had no business stepping into since a kid only to have the people Yu help forget .now I trust god and the process #turnthepage #letgoandletgod
