21 Savage’s brother gets justice after Tyrece Fuller was sentenced to serve 10 years in jail on charges of manslaughter.
Fuller, who skipped his sentencing in a move the judge said “lacked courage,” will spend the next 10 years behind bars for what was described as a needless crime.
“Mr. Davis-Emmons was obviously a very well-loved son, grandson and brother, who cared for his disabled brother, and was a talented musician. He looked after people in his community and had positive plans for the future. The victim personal statement graphically described how Terell Davis-Emmons’s death has devastated his family and those who knew and loved him,” Justice John Cavanaugh said. “This is yet another tragic example of the curse of knife crime in London. A young man’s life has needlessly been cut short by the willingness of young men to pick up a knife or blade and to use it when there are far easier and far safer and better ways of resolving the situation.”
After Davis-Emmons was killed last year, Savage shared a tribute to his late brother on Instagram, writing “can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that shit back,” but the “ball w/o you” rapper has yet to comment on Fuller’s sentencing.
