The mother of rapper Young Thug’s child LaKevia Jackson was shot and killed in Atlanta bowling alley, CBS 46 reports. According to the media outlet, the 31-year-old woman was attending a birthday party at Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta when she got into an argument over a bowling ball.
The altercation reportedly ended in gunfire and Jackson was shot while she was departing the bowling alley. Atlanta police are now looking for a male suspect.
“This is truly an atrocity. A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk told the outlet. “We talk about conflict resolution time and time again and this is an escalated dispute, so we will work this case through the night and we will find the person responsible.”
CBS46 spoke with LaKevia’s mother who said the suspect waited in the parking lot for 20 minutes for Jackson to leave the bowling alley, which is when he fired gunshots and striking her.
“I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I talked to my baby,” her mother Sherina Jackson mentioned to the outlet. “I could hear her over the phone crying and screaming then her best friend said she’s not breathing! I lost my baby all over a bowling ball.”
The Atlanta Police Department (APD) has not released any details about the suspected shooter, but they believe they are close to an arrest based on ballistic and surveillance evidence and onlookers testimonies from the scene.
The Neighborhood Talk first confirmed that LaKevia Jackson is the mother of at least one of Young Thug’s six children on Instagram. It’s unclear how many kids they share. So far, the hip hop star has not publicly commented on her passing.
