BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Police say a man has been charged in the killing of another man who was shot several times in Alabama.

AL.com reports the man who Birmingham police found March 23 with multiple gunshot wounds behind an apartment building was a father of four daughters and a local rapper.

Police spokesman Lt. Pete Williston says 29-year-old Garry Lynn Logan was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called out that Friday afternoon.

Police on Wednesday announced a murder warrant against 20-year-old Thavion Vanhorn in Logan’s death. Vanhorn turned himself in and is jailed in Jefferson County on $150,000 bond.

A neighbor had discovered Logan, but authorities have not said when he was shot or what led to the shooting.

It is unclear if Vanhorn has a lawyer.
