INGLEWOOD (CNS) – An ex-con was charged Monday in last December’s slaying of Compton rapper Slim 400 in Inglewood.
Michael Lanell Terry — also known under the alias “Tiny Doe Boy” — is charged with a count of murder involving the Dec. 8 shooting of Slim 400, whose legal name is Vincent Cohran, along with a count of possession of a firearm by a felon, according to the criminal complaint.
The complaint alleges that Terry has prior convictions for robbery in 2017 and possession of a firearm by a felon in 2019.
Cohran was fatally shot while getting out of his vehicle in the 8600 block of South 7th Avenue, according to Inglewood police.
Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics were called to the scene and took the man to a hospital, where he died a short time later.
Terry, a 33-year-old Los Angeles resident, was arrested last Thursday by Inglewood police. He has remained behind bars since then, according to jail records.
Co-defendant Tamra Lynn Bell, 42, of Inglewood, was taken into custody last Friday. She was charged with a felony count of accessory after the fact with knowledge of the crime.
No details were immediately available on whether the two were arraigned.
According to TMZ, Slim was born to military parents in Germany, moved to Los Angeles as a young child and was raised in Compton. The rapper was later discovered and signed by the now-defunct Pu$haz Ink music label — the same one made popular by YG and DJ Mustard.
“Slim narrowly escaped death back in the summer of 2019 when he was shot nine times in L.A.,” TMZ reported. “Slim claimed he was ambushed in the attack while visiting family in Compton.”
