Watch: DaBaby’s 2018 Walmart Shooting Footage Resurfaced Online
DaBaby was with his two children and then-girlfriend Mariah Osborne at a Walmart in North Carolina in November of 2018. DaBaby claims he was exploring the aisles when a man approached him and brought out a gun. Jaylin Craig, 19, was the man in question, and DaBaby assassinated him. Given the rapper’s account of events, it’s evident that he was attempting to suggest that he was acting in self-defense, and that his life would have been in danger if he hadn’t shot the man.
The rapper escaped murder charges after a judge determined that he was acting in self-defense. Craig’s mother, LaWanda Horsley, has maintained since the shooting that her son committed no wrongdoing. Craig’s friend Henry Douglas, who was present at the moment of the shooting, claims that DaBaby was the one who began it all.

An Investigative Report From Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone provided this information in an investigative report. DaBaby lunges at Douglas before Craig intervenes to break up the fight, according to the new CCTV footage posted by the publication. The viewpoint shifts after that, and we only see DaBaby pull out his gun and shoot Craig.
Douglas tells Rolling Stone that he and Craig saw the rapper in Walmart and that Douglas wanted to make sure it was him. After passing the rapper several times in an aisle, he became enraged and had some words for them. “That’s what eventually started it; when he took it the wrong way,” Douglas stated. “We were trying to see who you are, and he took it as somebody is looking at him with a problem.”
