The D.C. rapper wanted in connection to a shooting at Tysons Corner Center in Fairfax County, Virginia, has turned himself in.

Police say Noah Settles, 22, turned himself him at the Fairfax County jail Wednesday. He was sought on charges of attempted malicious wounding, discharging a weapon into an occupied building and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

Last Saturday, panicked shoppers fled the mall after shots were fired inside. Surveillance footage reviewed by police showed a man, believed to be Settles, brandishing a firearm within the mall around the time of the shooting.

Police said Settles was involved in a fight between two rival gangs and fired multiple rounds. He then fled the mall in a vehicle with D.C. tags.



The mall closed Saturday as police investigated and reopened Sunday around 11 a.m. Three people were taken to the hospital for injuries they got while fleeing, Fairfax County police said, adding that no one was injured from gunfire.

Settle, a rap artist known as “No Savage,” has some 148,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
