Update (Aug. 26, 4:45 pm): New information in this story has been leaking out, as reported by the San Jose Mercury News. According to the paper, Jeezy was one of six people arrested—the other five were apparently working for the Under The Influence Of Music Tour—all on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle, and are currently not considered suspects in the shooting death of Eric Johnson, who was killed backstage at the show on Friday. Mountain View police sergeant Saul Jaeger confirmed to the paper that no arrests had been made in the homicide investigation, and that police were still searching for one suspect, with the gun involved likely a “black pistol with a large magazine.”

Jeezy, however, was one of only three suspects in the weapons possession arrests whose bail was set at $1 million. The Mercury News also spoke with legal analyst and former Santa Clara County prosecutor Steven Clark about the case, with Clark indicating that police probably know more than they are letting on. “If they didn’t think [Jeezy] had significant knowledge about the homicide, I can’t imagine why he’d have a million-dollar bail,” Clark told the paper. Check out the full report here.

Original Story: Jeezy might have to sit out the rest of the Under The Influence Tour. The rapper was arrested on Sunday (Aug. 24) before hitting the stage at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif. in connection to a deadly shooting Friday night in Mountain View, Calif. The shooting led Jeezy and others to cancel their tour stop Saturday.

According to TMZ police are investigating the “No Tears” rapper for a shooting that involved a man getting hit five times. Police found an assault rifle believed to belong to Jeezy as well guns on several members of his entourage. He is currently still in custody. His bail is $1 million.
