Now, TMZ has received the disturbing 911 call that led to the felony murder warrant for YFN Lucci. On the recording, a woman describing a man clinging to a moving SUV before he was left for dead.
According to TMZ: “audio of the 911 call a woman made in Atlanta last month when she saw a white SUV speeding by “with a man hanging out of the car.” She says she eventually saw the man get shoved out onto the street. The witness told the operator the victim appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and she desperately tried to get an ambulance to the location because the man was “still trying to fight for his life.” She remained on the scene while waiting for the ambulance, standing near the victim — and said he was “taking his last breath” and he died moments later.”
