Second Person Indicted on Murder Charge in Death of Dallas Rapper MO3 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
A second person has been charged with the murder in the death of the Dallas rapper known as MO3, according to the Dallas County Court.
Devin Maurice Brown, 28, was charged Thursday with murder related to the November 11, 2020 death of Melvin Noble.
The 28-year-old Noble was gunned down on Interstate 35E near Marsalis Avenue while running down the freeway on foot from the shooter, Dallas police said.
Brown is the second person charged in Noble’s death. Kewon Dontrell White, 22, was charged with murder in February, according to court records.
White was charged Thursday with grievous bodily harm with a lethal weapon in connection with the November shooting.
A spectator sitting in his vehicle was also shot dead when the shooter opened fire. The viewer was hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Both Brown and White were charged with federal charges.
The two men, identified as affiliates by the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern Texas District, were each indicted in December on a number of felons in possession of a firearm.
Brown was also charged with a conspiracy he wanted to own to distribute a controlled substance, according to the US law firm.
According to a criminal complaint, law enforcement agencies raiding Brown’s house found a stolen AK-47 in his closet, as well as a substance that tested positive for synthetic cannabinoids, often referred to as K2 or spice, methamphetamine tablets, scales, baggies and more than $ 3,200.
A second criminal complaint alleged law enforcement found a 9mm pistol in White’s pocket. White escaped on a dirt bike and then on foot when officials tried to stop him, US prosecutors said.
If White is convicted of federal charges, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison and Brown faces up to 20 years on drug and gun charges.
