LaKevia Jackson, the mother of Young Thug’s child, was shot and killed at an Atlanta bowling alley, CBS 46 reports. According to the outlet, Jackson was attending a birthday party at an Atlanta bowling alley when she got into a dispute over a bowling ball.
Sherina Jackson, LeKavia’s mother, spoke to the outlet, and said her daughter was attending her best friend’s birthday party and was reportedly shot as she was leaving the bowling alley.
“I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I talked to my baby,” Sherina said. “I could hear her over the phone crying and screaming then her best friend said she’s not breathing!”
Sherina said, “I lost my baby all over a bowling ball,” she added describing her daughter as light, positive and so sweet.

“This is truly an atrocity. A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk told the outlet. “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.”
“APD said they would not be releasing the identity or details about the suspected shooter, but believe they are close to an arrest based on ballistic and surveillance evidence, along with witness testimony, gathered from the scene”, the outlet reports.
The Neighborhood Talk confirmed that Jackson was the mother to at least one of Young Thug’s six children. It is unclear how many children they share. The rapper has not commented on the death of Jackson as of yet.
