Rapper Michael Brock has been shot dead at the age of 19.

The Three-13 member was shot as he answered the door to members of a group of rival MCs in Bogalusa, Louisiana.

It's reported Michael, from nearby Kentwood, had gone into hiding after getting death threats from the rival group but was tracked down and killed on June 7.

It's believed he was staying at the home of a relative of his girlfriend.

Two members of group The Fours were arrested following a high speed chase.

Bogalusa Police Department told the press: "There were other people present in the apartment, including a 7-year-old child who was in the same room with Brock during the hail of gunfire. The child was miraculously not shot."

Tauj Taplin, 19, is said to have opened fire on Michael at point-blank range with an AR-15 after he answered a knock on his door at Sunset Acres Housing Complex.

Michael was hit multiple times before the assailant jumped into a getaway car allegedly being driven by Quardavion White, also 19, police have said.

The two men are suspected of having ties to a gang.

The suspects in the shooting were arrested three days after it happened.

Police were able to identity the alleged shooter and his getaway driver using surveillance footage and police intelligence.

Tauj had been identified as the alleged shooter and Quardavion as the suspected getaway driver after police reviewed surveillance video and witness testimony.

They were pulled over by police three days later in Texas, when Quardavion is alleged to have given a fake name and told his accomplice to make a run for it.

A high speed chase then ensued, which Texan police were forced to call off over fears that innocent civilians could be hurt.

It's said that Tauj tried to smash several petrol cars before finally being arrested while crossing back into Louisiana.

According to CBS affiliate 4WWL, they've both been charged in connection with the fatal shooting.

Bogalusa Police Capt. Miller said: "Now you have a 19-year-old young man that will never live his life and two other 19-year-old young men that may very well spend their life in jail.

"What did that solve? It didn’t solve anything."
