A witness contacted police during the investigation and the information helped lead to the arrest. White was arrested and taken into federal custody for prohibited person in possession of a firearm. He is also facing a murder charge.
White’s bond for the murder charge will be set at a later date by the magistrate.
On November 11 around noon, Mo3, whose real name is Melvin Noble, was traveling northbound on Interstate 35 between Illinois Avenue and Clarendon Drive.
Dallas Police said with Noble in his vehicle, a suspect got out of a vehicle armed with a gun and began approaching the victim’s vehicle, according to police. Police did not say if the vehicles had been stopped.
Police said Noble also got out of his vehicle and began running southbound on the freeway. White chased Noble and fired multiple rounds at him, striking him at least once then got back into his vehicle and drove off.
There is no word on a motive for the murder or how White and Noble knew each other.
