Hurricane Chris hopped on Instagram after bonding out of jail over a murder charge -- he says his name will be cleared.

"I was involved in a very unfortunate incident on Friday morning," the rapper said in a video shared to his social media platform.

"A very unfortunate incident. I want to thank everybody that's been praying for the family of the deceased and everybody that's been praying for my family. After a good thorough investigation my name will be cleared. Let God work. Watch God work. God bless. Thank you."

He posted bond Sunday, June 21, after being charged for second degree murder. The rapper allegedly involved in the fatal shooting of a man in Louisiana.

Caddo Parish Coroner's Office identified the man as Danzeria O. Farris Jr., 32, of Shreveport, who died from the gunshot wounds at Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport Hospital, police said.

Chris was identified as a suspect in the shooting and claimed the shooting was in self-defense after a struggle over his vehicle.

"Investigators were able to secure video footage of the incident that detectives believe showed that Dooley did not act in self-defense," the news release said.
