DaBaby’s deadly 2018 shooting at a North Carolina Walmart has surfaced in previously unseen video.

Rolling Stone published previously unreleased security footage of DaBaby’s 2018 altercation, which resulted in the death of 19-year-old Jaylin Craig. Following the shooting, the rapper, born Jonathan Kirk, was reportedly charged with carrying a concealed weapon, but he was never charged in Craig’s death.

DaBaby appears to be confronted by two people in the new video, which has no sound. They are Jaylin Craig and Henry Douglas. After Baby punches Douglas, a physical altercation ensues between DaBaby and Douglas. Craig appears to be brandishing a weapon in the background, but quickly hides it away.

The brawl between DaBaby and Douglas results in a new camera angle that shows them both struggling upright against one another. Craig then approaches them, reaching for a weapon a 2nd time before trying to separate the rapper and Craig. Mariah Osbourne, DaBaby’s then-girlfriend, challenges Craig, seeming to raise her right hand to his face at one moment as Baby and Douglas tussle.

The video then shifts back to the previous angle, revealing DaBaby sliding into field of view with a gun in his right hand. He then seems to to fire the gun while adjusting the hood of his hoodie that was on his head.

Craig is not shown being hit in the video, but DaBaby appears to fire the weapon. The video can be viewed in its entirety at the bottom of this page.

As previously stated, DaBaby has consistently maintained his claim of self-defense in the years since the incident.

While DaBaby was never charged with Craig’s death, he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon. DaBaby lacked a permit for the weapon. According to Rolling Stone via a county representative, the charge was dropped in March of 2019 after “a key civilian witness was unavailable.”

The state later reinstated the charge against DaBaby, and he was sentenced to 12 months unsupervised probation and a suspended 30-day jail sentence.
