The brother of Atlanta rapper Archie Eversole was charged with his murder, DeKalb County, Ga. police confirmed to Channel 2 Action News.

Eversole, 37, was shot on March 25 on Golf Vista Circle. Police initially responded to a 911 call about the shooting at a Chevron gas station on Snapfinger Woods Drive. They arrived to find Eversole suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was transported to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries on April 3.

Eversole's family did not announce his death until April 13 on social media. The announcement left fans shocked and confused.

Eversole enthusiastically embraced the Atlanta United soccer team. In 2018, he released "United We Conquer," a theme for the Atlanta United.
