Lil Loaded was arrested in October 2020 after shooting and killing his 18-year-old friend Khalil Walker with a rifle during an incident in Texas.
Lil Loaded was charged with murder in March 2021 after the death of his friend. The Dallas High Court ruled that there was sufficient evidence to charge the cause of death.
On the afternoon of October 25, 2020, police were called to Dallas’ home. He was shot in the chest and later taken to the Methodist Charlton Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.
His sister, Kija, ran outside the house where the shooting took place and saw Walker “lying on the street with a gunshot wound to his finger.”
According to the affidavit, Kija “picked up [Lil Load’s] phone and saw a video of the suspect shooting the complainant.”
After the shooting, Loader thanked his fans for their support and paid tribute to his friend.
He wrote: “I appreciate all y’all support. They try to make u look guilty when u innocent regardless .. we going to get past this [sic].
“RIP my brother love you.”
According to court records, Lil Lord was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, June 1, for a preliminary hearing.
Lil Load’s last Instagram post before his death looks like a farewell note.

My life … I ask you to enter your kingdom for all my sins. I know that you love all your children. My heart and soul are ready to join you.
