Mother Of Young Thug’s Child Fatally Shot At Atlanta Bowling Alley

LaKevia Jackson was reportedly involved in a dispute over a bowling ball, which turned violent.

One of the most influential rappers in hip hop and trap music is suffering a tragic loss. LaKevia Jackson, the mother of Young Thug’s child, was reportedly shot and killed at an Atlanta bowling alley. She was only 31 years old.

Atlanta’s CBS46 reports that Jackson was attending a birthday party on March 17 at Metro Fun Center located along the Metropolitan Pkwy in the southwestern part of the city when she got into a dispute over a bowling ball.

A man who is said to have argued with her reportedly waited until Jackson was leaving the venue before gunning her down. Atlanta police say they are now searching for a male suspect.

“This is truly an atrocity. A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk told WGCL. “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.”

CBS46 spoke with Jackson’s mother who said her daughter was attending a birthday party when the suspect waited in the parking lot for 20 minutes for Jackson to exit before shooting her.

“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.”

The Atlanta Police Department has not yet released information about the suspect, but say they believe they’re close to making an arrest based on surveillance and ballistic evidence, as well as accounts from witnesses at the scene.

According to The Neighborhood Talk, Jackson is the mother of at least one of the rapper’s six children. So far, Thug, born Jeffery Lamar Williams, has not commented publicly.
