Roommates as we previously reported, Rae Sremmurd’s stepfather was tragically killed earlier this week and their brother was initially thought of as a person of interest in the crime—now he has officially been arrested.
@TMZ_TV reports that, Michael Sullivan, 19, was arrested for his stepfather’s murder shortly after being released from a local hospital. He is currently still in police custody. Rae Sremmurd’s stepfather, 62-year-old Floyd Sullivan, helped raised them since they were children and sadly lost his life after a shooting in Mississippi, allegedly by their brother Michael.
Tupelo, Mississippi police says officers were dispatched to the home on January 6th where they found Floyd dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds. According to law enforcement sources, Michael was being held for psychiatric evaluation at a local facility before he was ultimately arrested for the murder.
Police also say that there are currently no other suspects in the case. Swae Lee (one half of Rae Sremmurd) recently broke his silence on the tragedy, tweeting:
“I’ve been tested my whole life. I pray this world let’s me keep some compassion.”
Those tweets were followed by several heartbreak emojis.
Floyd raised Rae Sremmurd (Swae Lee and Slim’s Jxmmi) ever since the boys were in middle school, and moved to Mississippi with their mother, Bernadette. Floyd also has a son, Floyd Jr., from a previous relationship.
We want to send Rae Sremmurd our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
