LaKevia Jackson, who shares a son with rapper Young Thug, was shot to death in a dispute over a bowling ball.
The 31-year-old was celebrating a friend’s birthday before things took a deadly turn. She was reportedly shot multiple times at the parking lot of the Metro Fun Center.
Investigators are looking for a suspect, and the investigation is ongoing.
The shooter reportedly waited for LaKevia Jackson in bowling alley parking lot
The Atlanta Homicide Commander Ralph Woolfolk confirmed to Fox5 Atlanta that the murder was a result of an argument over a bowling ball.
“A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” Woolfolk said, adding the death was “truly an atrocity.”
Woolfolk revealed that police are currently working with several eyewitnesses to figure out exactly what happened.
“We will work this case through the night and we will find the person responsible,” Woolfolk said. “You know who you are so go ahead and turn yourself in.”
Investigators believe the suspect left the bowling alley and waited 20 minutes for Jackson to come out in the parking lot.
According to CBS 46 in Atlanta, Jackson’s mother said her daughter was at the bowling alley to attend her best friend’s birthday and recounted hearing her daughter’s final moments over the phone.
“I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I talked to my baby,” Sherina Jackson said. “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,” Sherina said.
LaKevia Jackson is the mother of Young Thug’s 14-year-old son
LaKevia Jackson reportedly has a 14-year-old son with Young Thug. The pair met when they were living in the same apartment complex before Young Thug’s found fame in the music industry.
Thug reportedly is the father of six children by four women; three sons and three daughters.
LaKevia’s son with the rapper has been identified as Kyvion Jackson.
CBS46 reporter Tori Cooper reported that LaKevia’s mother said her grandson is distraught and appears to have been informed about his mother’s passing.
