Back in January, Future’s former bodyguard, Michael Phillips, was shot and killed in Georgia. On Monday, the prime suspect in his murder, Tywan Porter, was arrested while working at a grocery store in New York City, the New York Post reports. Porter allegedly shot Phillips at the door to his home over an argument. Future claims he had no knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the murder, since he and his ex-bodyguard hadn’t worked together since 2012, according to TMZ“Rest in Paradise Big Mike,” the rapper tweeted at the time.
