In the early morning hours of Oct. 9, an apparent dispute between 27-year-old Kevhani Camilla Hicks and her manager turned deadly in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, Florida. Footage obtained by NBC 6 showed that the rapper, who performs under the stage name Key Vhani, allegedly argued with, was overcome by, and then fired upon two males around 1:30 a.m.
As detailed by the outlet, Hicks could be seen stepping out of a white vehicle first before another man, said to be her manager, also stepped out of the vehicle to confront her in the street standing beside the trunk. Within a minute, after the trunk was opened, the confrontation turned physical and a second man could be seen exiting the car to join in the melee.
Ultimately, the overpowered suspect appeared to be briefly pinned to the ground, then slammed to the ground, before all parties returned to their feet and broke away from one another. However, as the two men walked back to the car and the woman headed off in the other direction, she suddenly whirled around, drew a firearm from her bag, and opened fire on the manager.
Uncensored clips of the footage circulating online clearly showed the man who had fled for cover behind a nearby SUV crawling away as the suspect pursued and continued to fire upon him. Moments later, as he sprawled helplessly in the street, the armed woman was struck by the car, driven by the second man who had fled to the driver’s seat once shots were fired.

An erratic U-turn took the suspect down and potentially under the fleeing vehicle after which she could be seen running off in the opposite direction leaving the fatally wounded manager in the street.
NBC 6 reported that officers responded to a nearby ShotSpotter alert and found the man in the street and Hicks nearby suffering from blunt force injuries. The manager later died from his wounds.
“The defendant stated she was in fear due to the victim’s size and upon hearing the victim yell ‘I’ll kill you with one hit,'” the police report stated.
After she was arrested and booked, a bond hearing set her release into house arrest at $50,000 as her public defender insisted it was a “clear case of self-defense.”

Hicks took the same stance on social media as she posted a message Monday that read, “Good morning to all of my supporters and fans! I’m finally home after experiencing something so traumatic and life changing. I have 3 broken ribs and bruises all over so I’m currently healing and getting rest. I just want to personally thank everyone who supports me and knows that I’m not the horrible person some are claiming that I am. I can’t comment on the case at all, but I pray you all continue to stand by me and support me through this tragic time. I love you all to the moon and back!”
Meanwhile, a crowdfunding page had been established seeking $60,000 to support her. Since it was created on Oct. 26, the page has collected only $315 toward that goal at the time of this post.
