WINNFIELD, LA (KSLA) -

A suspect has been identified in the fatal shooting of Addarren Ross, and they say it was all over a video game.

Police in Winnfield got a warrant to arrest 36-year-old Tony Holden for the murder of the 18-year-old rapper, better known as Lil' Snupe.

Ross died Thursday morning at an apartment in Winnfield. He had been shot twice in the chest. Police say the shooting was the result of an argument that broke out during a video game at a friend's apartment.

"With further investigations I believe he was involved in some sort of altercation that resulted from actually were betting on video games," Lt. Charles Curry, Winnfield Police Criminal Investigator told KNOE 8 News.
 
Ross, who was from Jonesboro, had recently signed a recording deal with the Meek Mill's Dream Chasers label.
    
Police describe Holden as a convicted violent felon who should be considered armed and dangerous. He is believed to have associates and relatives in Winnfield, Texas and other parts of the country.

"We're following every lead that's given to us trying to find his whereabouts," said Lt. Curry. "Were even asking people in the public right now if they have any information to call the police department."
