New York authorities are reportedly on the hunt for a man with ties to The Diplomats whom they claim ordered the murder of a teenager in 2005.
According To The New York Daily News, authorities claim that 32-year-old Carlos Thompson, who served as extra muscle for The Diplomats during their shows, ordered 13-year-old L'mani Delima to shoot 15-year-old Phoenix Garrett for selling Dipset CD's on a Harlem street in 2005.
Authorities say that Thompson approached Garrett and attacked him. Garrett would fight back by slicing Thompson in the face with a box cutter.
Thompson would then get one of his associates to get a .38-caliber handgun from a nearby car and would hand it to Delima and ordered him to shoot Garrett. Delima shot Garrett five times.
Garrett's parents told The Daily News that their son was selling the CD's to earn money for college.
Thompson would flee the scene and Delima would be apprehended. Delima has been convicted for the killing and will be sentenced in June.

“For once in his life, Thompson should do the right thing and turn himself in,” said Garrett's mother, Jacqueline Birkett-Johnson. “I don't want to see Carlos Thompson out on the street one day longer to damage another child. He took away Phoenix's life and took away L'mani's life. It is unbelievable the damage he has done.”
