In what will come across as a really shocking development, the mother of one of American rapper, Young Thug’s six children has been shot and killed after getting into a fight with a man over a bowling ball at an Atlanta bowling alley on Thursday.
Family members said LaKevia Jackson, 31, was attending her best friend’s birthday party at the Metro Fun Center at 1959 Metropolitan Parkway SW when she got into an argument with a man over a bowling ball.
About 20 minutes later, at 11:30 p.m., Jackson was leaving the venue when the man with whom she had quarreled earlier allegedly ambushed her in the parking lot and shot her multiple times before fleeing.
Sherina Jackson, LaKevia’s mother, told CBS 46 that she was on the phone with her daughter after the shooting and could hear her crying and screaming, before a friend told her that her daughter had stopped breathing.
LaKevia Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene. As of Friday afternoon, her killer remained at large.
‘I lost my baby all over a bowling ball,’ Sherina Jackson said.
LaKevia and Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, share a 14-year-old son named Kyvion Jackson.
Williams, 30, met Jackson while she was attending high school in Atlanta.
The rapper has six children – three sons and three daughters – by four different woman.
Atlanta Police Department’s Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk called Jackson’s killing ‘an atrocity.’
He added that police have gathered surveillance video, ballistic evidence and witness accounts, and they believe they are close to making an arrest.
‘You know who you are,’ Woolfolk said, addressing the gunman directly. ‘Go ahead and turn yourself in. We assure you that we will bring you into custody,’ reported Fox 5.
On the night of Jackson’s killing, Williams was in Austin, performing in a concert at the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) festival.
