Surveillance video circulating online appears to show the moments after the shooting that left teenager and manager Ludacris Chaka Zulu charged with murder.
Chaka Zulu, whose real name is Ahmed Obafemi, faces murder, aggravated assault, and simple battery charges stemming from a late June shooting outside a Buckhead mall on Peachtree Street.

Banks, as well as the person who posted part of the security footage, are questioning why Chaka Zulu was charged with murder.
The person who posted the video has slowed it down and sped up some parts, but it shows a conflict. According to the 911 calls, this happened before the shooting started.
“It was a little fight or whatever and um, next thing we heard gunshots,” one 911 caller said.
The video was narrated by the person who posted it. The story goes that four men were waiting for Zulu, one of whom appears to be walking towards Zulu. After a brief scuffle, the video shows Zulu being pushed down by other people.
After security forces entered, the video shows one man punching what appears to be a woman who helped to spread the word.
Although this particular video shows a fight and then security breaks up, it stops short of showing what happened moments later, including when exactly any shots were fired.
All in all, three men were shot, including Zulu, and all three were taken to the hospital, where 23-year-old Artez Benton died.
Almost two months later, Zulu turned himself in and was released on a $200,00 bond the same day.

In a statement, Banks wrote “Zulu was attacked and jumped from behind” and “in an attempt to save himself, Mr. Zulu lawfully discharged his weapon in self-defense.
Zulu was the only person arrested that night. APD said the investigation remains active and ongoing.
