The mother of one of rapper Young Thug’s six children has been shot and killed after getting into a fight with a man over a bowling ball at an Atlanta bowling alley on Thursday.
Family members said LaKevia Jackson, 31, was attending her best friend’s birthday party at the Metro Fun Center at 1959 Metropolitan Parkway SW when she got into an argument with a man over a bowling ball.
About 20 minutes later, at 11:30 pm, Jackson was leaving the venue when the man with whom she had quarreled earlier allegedly ambushed her in the parking lot and shot her multiple times before fleeing.
Sherina Jackson, LaKevia’s mother, told CBS 46 that she was on the phone with her daughter after the shooting and could hear her crying and screaming, before a friend told her that her daughter had stopped breathing.
LaKevia Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene. As of Friday afternoon, her killer remained at large.
‘I lost my baby all over a bowling ball,’ Sherina Jackson said.
LaKevia and Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, share a 14-year-old son named Kyvion Jackson.
