We did wonder when we saw the headline Cassidy Wanted For Murder if David had finally lost it, and gone out with a handgun and old scores to settle. But it turns out to be a rapper - real name Barry Reese:

According to police, Cassidy (real name Barry Reese) and two other men, armed with .45 and .40 caliber handguns, 9 mm pistols, AK47 assault rifles and 7.62 mm rifles, fired on three other men during an argument that unfolded behind a house in the rapper's northwest Philadelphia neighborhood just before 1 a.m. on April 15.

One of the men who was shot, Desmond Hawkins, 22, of Philadelphia, died from a gunshot wound to the back. The two other men were treated at area hospitals for gunshot wounds and subsequently released.

Cassidy is expected to give himself up to authorities later today - presumably after a good breakfast.
