JDY’s father says he was also armed and fought back to defend himself and his son. Scott was shot twice in the arm, while JayDaYoungan was hit at least 8 times. Scott remains in the hospital.
TMZ broke the story…JDY lost a lot of blood in the shooting and underwent surgery, but died in hospital.
The rapper’s father believes his son’s murder was the result of jealousy…that he got out of Bogalusa…he thinks whoever was behind the shooting was jealous of JDY’s success.
Scott says his son hasn’t had anything with anyone and he doesn’t think it’s gang related. He doesn’t think JDY knew about the gunmen.
Bogalusa Police Chief Kendall Bullen tells TMZ … cops are investigating all possible motives, including gangs and/or retaliation.
For some reason the cops believe there was only one shooter…the police did not identify the suspect or make any arrests.
JayDaYoungan’s dad says people should remember the rapper as a “good, humble, respectful kid.”
