Rapper Young Jeezy is in police custody after a gun thought to have been used in a fatal shooting on Friday was found on his tour bus.

Eric Johnson was shot five times backstage in Mountain View, Calif., last week during a stop on Wiz Khalifa's multi-artist Under the Influence of Music Tour, which features Jeezy alongside the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan and DJ Drama.

The 38-year-old victim died in a local hospital on Saturday morning.

Cops investigating the incident raided Jeezy's vehicle on Sunday, when an assault rifle believed to belong to the "Put On" hitmaker was uncovered, according to TMZ. Authorities suspect the weapon was used to gun down the victim.

Jeezy, real name Jay Jenkins, and a number of his entourage members were arrested on gun possession charges following the bus search.

The hip-hop star, who was forced to miss his set at Sunday night's show in Irvine, Calif., as a result of the legal drama, is currently being held on $1 million bail.

I think white people need to use the race card as an excuse for everything and say they are not quilty due to racism. We need our own version of Al Sharpton standing up for us and saying it was discrimination  and we were racially profiled.

Oh that's right he is not white so it could not possibly be racial he is just a good guy who goes to church every Sunday with his mom.  He is an angel just like Travon was  and Michael Brown  he could not possibly belong to any gangs.he did not do it he was framed by a white man..where are the signs and protesters now screaming for justice oh that's  right someone Planted the gun used in the killing in his van.
