Pleasure P's Teen Son Wanted by Police for Allegedly Shooting and Leaving Man to Die on Road

Marcus Ramone Cooper Jr., who is only 17 years old, is being sought out by authorities as he is accused of killing 24-year-old Tyron Arthus back in October.

AceShowbiz - While Pleasure P has been busy performing with Pretty Rick on "The Millenium Tour", his son has reportedly been eluding capture. The R&B star's teen son Marcus Ramone Cooper Jr. is wanted by police on a murder suspicion.

Several local news stations report that Marcus, who is only 17 years old, is accused of shooting and leaving a man to die on the road back in October. Authorities were only able to secure an arrest warrant on November 1, but the teen remains at large as of press time.

Marcus and the victim, 24-year-old Tyron Arthus, were reportedly together in a vehicle in the early morning hours of October 8. It's unclear what transpired inside, but Marcus reportedly ordered Tyron exit the vehicle before shooting him several times. He dumped the body on I-595.

Marcus has been charged with first-degree premeditated murder with a firearm. Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony vowed that he won't stop until Marcus is in custody, "I don't care where he's at, whether it be in South Florida or Maine. He committed a crime in Broward County, and we're gonna bring him back here."

"We encourage you to turn yourself in," the sheriff added, "but make no mistake. We're not going to wait for you to come in." He condemned the murder as saying, "Leaving someone to die on the road is an atrocity we can't accept," adding that police will also arrest anyone who may be helping Marcus.

The sheriff's office went on warning the public of Marcus's presence in a statement. "Cooper should be considered armed and dangerous, and the investigation into the homicide is ongoing," the statement read.

Tyron's mother Marie Arthus, meanwhile, told reporters, "For them to take my son's life and gun him down, they left him like a dog on the side of the road. That wasn't fair." She continued, "I just want justice for my son. He was not a bad person. He was not a bad kid. For them to take my son's life and gun him down and left him like a dog on the side of the road, that wasn't fair."

Pleasure P, whose real name is Marcus Ramone Cooper Sr, has not released a statement on his son's alleged crime.
