UPDATE: DeKalb County Police said they responded to a person shot at a Chevron gas station off Snapfinger Woods Drive on March 25. Eversole was transported to the hospital where he died on April 3. 

Officers located the suspect, the rapper’s brother, at what police called the “incident location” off Golf Vista Circle, where he was taken into custody “without incident.”

Loved ones turned to social media to mourn the 37-year-old musician who was best known for his 2002 single, “We Ready”.

The song was adopted by Atlanta United and frequently played during games. Eversole, who was sometimes dubbed Archie “United” Eversole was a big fan of the pinstripes, and even released a song for the team called “United We Conquer.”

“We are heartbroken to hear of the tragic passing of Archie Eversole. A staple in the Atlanta hip-hop scene, Archie adopted Atlanta United before our first season and continued to be one of our club’s most fervent supporters,” the team said in a statement. “In addition to his decorated musical career, his voice will long live in our supporters’ minds as ‘We Ready’ billows through the speakers for kick-off at Atlanta United matches. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.”

The anthem was played before tip-off Wednesday night as the Atlanta Hawks took on the Charlotte Hornets.

Eversole often proudly proclaimed he was Atlanta-raised, nodding to his roots in Clayton and Henry counties.

The suspect was charged with aggravated assault on the day of the incident but charges were upgraded to murder after the victims passing, police said.
