The mother of one of Young Thug’s children was shot and killed during a fight at a bowling alley.
31-year-old LaKevia Jackson was shot multiple times during a dispute over a bowling ball.
The Atlanta Police Department responded to Metro Fun Center Thursday night, March 17, on a report a woman had been shot. When they arrived, they found LaKevia Jackson dead, having suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
A reporter who spoke to LaKevia Jackson’s mom said the deceased was at the bowling alley to celebrate a friend’s birthday and that the alleged shooter waited in the parking lot for about 20 minutes for her to leave.
Investigators say they only have one male suspect at this time, and according to Lt. Woolfolk, police know who he is.
“We will find the person who’s responsible. You know who you are. Go ahead and turn yourself in. We assure you that we will bring you into custody,” Lt. Woolfolk said to the unnamed suspect.
Police say they have surveillance video of the incident, as well as ballistic evidence and several cooperating witnesses.
Young Thug and LaKevia have a 14-year-old son, Kyvion, together.
The rapper has 6 children – 3 boys and 3 girls – by four women.
Young Thug, 30, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, became a father at the age of 17.
