We are sad to report that LaKevia Jackson the mother of one of Young Thug’s children has died.
According to CBS46:
Atlanta police are looking for the man that shot and killed a 31-year-old woman after what they say was a dispute over a bowling ball.
It happened at Metro Fun Center along Metropolitan Parkway in southwest Atlanta.
Investigators tell CBS46 the woman, later identified as LaKevia Jackson, appeared to be attending a celebration at the bowling ally and that at some point in the evening she got into a fight that escalated into gunfire.
CBS46 spoke with Jackson’s mother who said LaKevia was attending her best friend’s birthday party and was apparently 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,” her mother, 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,” Jackson 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. 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 Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk said.
“We know who are so go ahead and turn yourself in.”
It has been confirmed that Jackson had a child with local Atlanta rapper, Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams.
Their son is a 14-year-old named Kyvion Jackson.
Young Thug and Jackson met before he was famous at an apartment complex while she was attending South Atlanta High School and living with her mom.
Atlanta Police said during a press conference on Friday afternoon that they are talking to a woman about the shooting, but did not identify her as a suspect.
This is so tragic, sending love to her family ❤️?This is also why I stay home and don’t argue with people anymore, even if I’m 100% right. People are not mentally well, wayyy to many situations like these keep popping up.
