The mother of Young Thug’s 14-year-old son, LaKevia Jackson, was shot and killed outside of an Atlanta bowling alley on Thursday night.
Atlanta-based news reporter Tori Cooper, who spoke to the victim’s mother, said on Twitter that the 31-year-old went to her best friend’s party at Metro Fun Center and got into a dispute over a “bowling ball” with another partygoer.
According to the CBS local news reporter, the suspect “waited 20 mins in the parking lot for LaKevia before he shot her while she was leaving.”
Cooper also shared in a separate tweet that Jackson’s mother confirmed the victim had a son named Kyvion Jackson with rapper Young Thug, and said the teen “isn’t doing well” following the death of his mother.
According to TMZ, Atlanta Metro Police said Jackson suffered “multiple gunshot wounds.”
The identity of the suspect is unknown and it is unclear if any arrests have been made as of Friday afternoon.
APD Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk told CBS46 on Friday morning, “This is truly an atrocity. 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,” he continued. “We know who are so go ahead and turn yourself in.”
Young Thug has not posted about the incident on social media, and his reps also did not immediately respond to our requests.
According to Jackson’s mother, the “Relationship” rapper met his now-deceased ex “before he was famous while they were both living in the same apt. complex,” Cooper shared in a tweet.
Young Thug has six children by four women, including three sons and three daughters.
