Jordan Wilson, the former member of the Alief-area rap group FDAB charged with murder in the May 4 shooting death of his ex-bandmate Toyurean "T.O.Y." Young, has been arrested, the Houston Police Department said this morning.

According to HPD, Wilson, who had reportedly been feuding with Young on Twitter for months after leaving FDAB (Fly Den a Bitch) for the group KREAM, was arrested Tuesday in Corpus Christi.

The two rappers became involved in an altercation in the parking lot of a McDonald's in the 10700 block of Beechnut in southwest Houston around 9:30 p.m. the evening of May 4. According to the report by HPD's Sgt. M. Countryman and Officer R. Olive:

Wilson approached Mr. Young, whom he had threatened in the past, in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant at the above location and both men began fighting. At some point during the fight, Wilson retrieved a gun from his shorts' pocket and shot Young.

Wilson then fled the scene on foot. Young was taken by paramedics to the hospital.

Young was taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where he later died. HPD says the U.S. Marshals tracked Wilson to Corpus Christi, where he was arrested after a traffic stop.

He is currently in the Nueces County jail awaiting return to Houston
