Swae Lee has broken his silence about the death of his stepfather, Floyd Sullivan.

Kerry Smalls, a spokesman for Rae Sremmurd, confirmed that Sullivan is their stepfather and their brother, Michael Brown, is in custody in connection with the shooting. Tupelo Police Captain Charles McDougald said the victim’s son is a person of interest and is being held for psychiatric review. He would not release or confirm the man’s name, saying no charges have been filed.

“There were no other injuries reported in the home and no other suspects are being sought at this time,” McDougald said. He did not say what led to the shooting noting that the investigation is still in its early stages.

Following the heartbreaking news, Swae took to Twitter to share his thoughts. In one tweet, he tweeted heartbroken emojis. He then tweeted, “I pray this world let’s me keep some compassion” followed by, “I’ve been tested my whole life.”

Swae also took to his Instagram account to post about his stepfather’s death. “Life has a crazy way of making sure your still on your toes,” he wrote on his Instagram story. “OG Gone live forever.”
