ATLANTA (AP) — A grand jury in Georgia has indicted a man authorities say fatally shot an Atlanta rapper at a recording studio last year.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement that 29-year-old Vinson Hardimon, known as rapper Young Vito, was indicted Tuesday on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

A trial date has not been set.

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

Authorities say Hardimon was waiting for his turn in the recording booth before punching Hamilton. The fight ended with Hamilton shot in the chest. He later died at a hospital.

Hardimon later turned himself in to authorities.
