2 Chainz Restaurant Murder Investigation Lands A Suspect

ATLANTA, GA – In October 2020, an individual was shot and

killed over admission prices to 2 Chainz’s Members Only lounge

in northeast Atlanta. On Thursday (July 15), police revealed they

believe to have the alleged suspect in custody.


According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 24-year-

old Malik Payne was arrested by U.S. marshals in

CliftonTownship, Michigan. Payne remains behind bars

in Michigan on felony murder charges along with illegal

possession of a firearm by a felon and is awaiting

extradition to Atlanta.

On October 29, 2020, Members Only security

worker Caleb Culbreath was shot in the chest during an

argument over admission at around 2 a.m. ET. The 27-

year-old victim was transported to Grady Memorial

Hospital but succumbed to his wounds shortly after and

was pronounced dead.


This isn’t the only violent altercation to take place at

Members Only, which is reportedly a joint venture owned

by 2 Chainz and Snoop Dogg. On April 11, a pair of

security guards were shot when an assailant opened fire

in a drive-by from his Dodge Challenger after being

kicked out of the lounge earlier in the night.


Both unnamed victims were transported to a local

hospital but were alert and survived their injuries after

being treated overnight. An investigation in the case

remains ongoing with the suspect at-large.

The Members Only lounge website says the venue fancies

itself as “Atlanta’s exclusive VIP lounge for the city’s

socialites and elite professionals.”No further details are

available at this time.
