Mother Of Young Thug’s Child Shot And Killed In Atlanta – Suspect Arrested
Unconscious souls these days and in the days since earth existed have ZERO gratitude for entertainers, performers and the people who bring joy into our daily lives.
Two weeks after the mother of rapper Young Thug’s child, LaKevia Jackson, was shot and killed in Atlanta, police have arrested the suspect in connection to the case.
According to WXIA-TV, on Thursday (Mar. 31) detectives took 25-year-old Joshua Fleetwood into custody with the help of the U.S. Marshals, the Atlanta Police Department confirms.
On Mar. 17, Lakevia Jackson’s was celebrating her best friend’s birthday bowling at Atlanta’s Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta. She was bowling next to Fleetwood who was on a date, when an argument began over a bowling ball.
The argument moved outside and resulted in gunfire that ultimately killed 31-year-old Jackson.
Fleetwood reportedly waited until Jackson was leaving the venue before fatally shooting her.
“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.”
Lakevia leaves behind a 14-year-old son she shares with rapper Young Thug.
Fleetwood was arrested on felony warrants of murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police said.
Young Thug has not yet responded to the tragic incident and reportedly will not be releasing a statement according to a representative for the artist.
This is the part where people tell me to keep my opinions to myself… This is also the part for my tribe who may find themselves often dealing with men on a lower frequency who are quick to get angry, here is how you keep them calm and save your life.
If a man flirts with you, turn him down with sheer kindness, a smile and let him know his interest is appreciated.
Do not attempt to argue with a man or strangers period. Humble yourself and continue to speak with kindness. You never know WHO you are talking to.
Police obtained warrants for Fleetwood’s arrest three days after the deadly shooting. Police said Fleetwood is a conflicted felon with 16 cycles through the criminal justice system.
Fleetwood didn’t value his own life, so how can you expect him to value someone else’s?
This advice is NOT for women who feel like you should be able to pop off and talk to a man or anyone else how you feel. You are right, continuing doing you Sis. My advice is for women who seek to be ladies, and want to live to see their children grow up.
You can not control the behavior of others, but you can control your own behavior, which also controls outcomes.
