The mother of one of rapper Young Thug‘s children, Lakevia Jackson, was shot and killed in Atlanta yesterday (March 18). Jackson was at the Metro Fun Center bowling alley when a dispute broke out between Jackson and another person over a bowling ball. The dispute escalated and involved gunfire that resulted in her death.
“This is truly an atrocity,” said APD Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk at a press conference. “A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball. 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. We know who [you] are so go ahead and turn yourself in,” he added.
According to Lakevia’s mother, the deceased spoke with her moments before she passed away. The suspect reportedly waited for Lakevia in the parking lot for 20 minutes. Lakevia was attending a birthday party.
“I didn’t know that would be the last time I talked to my baby,” her mother said. “I could hear her over the phone crying and screaming then her best friend said she’s not breathing!”
