    On Thursday night, authorities released a sketch of one of the two suspects they believe was involved in last week’s fatal shooting of Atlanta area rapper Yung Teddy.

    The rapper, born Justin Mitchell, was found shot to death in his Austell home on Jan. 2. The rapper sent out a tweet a day before saying “N—-S WANNA SEE ME DEAD.” Mitchell also posted photos of threatening text messages he received on Instagram.

    A few hours after the message was posted on Twitter, police discovered Mitchell’s body. This was Cobb County’s first homicide of the new year.

    The first suspect in the shooting, who is depicted in the sketch, is described as an African-American male, 20 to 23 years old and between 5’6″ and 5’9″ with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a gray sweater, dark pants and a black beanie hat. He had a handgun.

    The second suspect is described as an African-American male between 5’4″ and 5’6″. He had a navy blue bandana covering his face and was wearing a multicolored beanie hat.

    Cobb County police say that both men are still at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
    Although no one has been arrested for the shooting, police have arrested a woman who they believe sent Mitchell the death threats.

    Earlier this week, police charged Yachari Kiyana Miller with sending Mitchell threating messages. Miller allegedly sent the rapper text messages saying, “You a dead man walking” and “This your year to die.”

    Published reports show that Miller has been charged with one count of felony terroristic threats and acts, and has been in Cobb County Detention Center since Friday.

    Police are still investigating a motive behind the killing and are seeking the suspects. Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call Cobb County police at (770) 499-3945.
