Police said the man will face charges in connection with a March 17 shooting at Atlanta's Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta along Metropolitan Parkway. The argument spilled out of the building, escalating into gunfire that killed 31-year-old Jackson.

It has been reported that Jackson shared a child with Young Thug, and her social media accounts featured photos of her son and the rapper.

A representative for Young Thug previously said he would not be releasing a statement.

Fleetwood is being held in the Fulton County Jail. He was arrested on felony warrants of murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police said. He waived his first court appearance regarding this case. 

Court records show he has been arrested more than a dozen times before this incident.
