The mother of one of Young Thug’s children was shot and killed during a dispute at an Atlanta bowling alley.
According to CBS46, LaKevia Jackson attended a birthday celebration for her best friend at the Metro Fun Center in Southwest Atlanta.
A homicide detective revealed Jackson got into a dispute with another patron, apparently over a bowling ball.
Things took a turn for the worst as Jackson left the Metro Fun Center.
An unidentified gunman opened, fired, and fatally struck Jackson, killing her instantly. Jackson’s mother shared a heart-wrenching comment with CBS46 after the shooting.
“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.”

While the shooter has yet to be apprehended, Atlanta Police Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk said they knew the gunman’s identity and urged him to turn himself in.
Woolfolk was dumbstruck at the level of pettiness that caused the argument and subsequent shooting, which cost LaKevia Jackson her life.
“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,” Lt. Woolfolk told CBS46.
Young Thug has yet to comment on the tragedy.
