Rapper JayDaYoungan was shot dead by five men who ambushed him while he and his father were sitting outside their Louisiana home.
The musician, whose real name was Javorius Scott, was shot at least eight times according to his father, Kenyatta Scott, who was shot twice in the arm.
Speaking to TMZ, Scott told how he and his 24-year-old son were sitting on the lawn outside their Bogalusa home on Wednesday evening when a black truck pulled up in front of them and three people with guns jumped out.
Scott said as he and his son attempted to flee to their house they were met by two more people with guns who opened fire on them.
The father had his own gun on him and shot back at the attackers. JayDaYoungan was rushed to the hospital while suffering heavy blood loss and died there after undergoing surgery. His father remains in the hospital in stable condition.
Despite Scott’s account police said they are only looking for one shooter, and have not yet identified any suspects. Bogalusa Police Chief Kendall Bullen told TMZ that his department is looking into all motives for the shooting, including gang related activity.
JayDaYoungan was signed to Atlantic records in 2017. He had just been released from prison in June for gun-related charges.
