Louisiana rapper JayDaYoungan was ambushed and fatally shot by 5 shooters… according to his father, who was there when his son was gunned down.Kenyatta Scott said that he and his son, JayDaYoungan were relaxing in the front yard of their Louisiana home Wednesday evening when a black truck pulled up and 3 people jumped out with guns.
Scott says they tried to run inside the house, but 2 more shooters came from around the side … and the shooting began.
JaDayoungan’s father says he shot back in defense. Scott was shot twice in the arm, while his son was struck at least 8 times. Scott remains in the hospital. The rapper lost a lot of blood in the shooting and underwent surgery, but later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
Scott believes his son’s murder was motivated by jealousy … because he made it out of Bogalusa … he thinks whoever was behind the shooting was envious of JaDaYoungan’s success.
Scott says his son didn’t have beef with anyone, he doesn’t think it was gang-related and he doesn’t think his son knew the shooters. Bogalusa Police Chief Kendall Bullen said police are looking at all possibilities for a motive, including gangs and/or retaliation.JayDaYoungan’s father says fans should remember the rapper as a “good, humble and respectful kid.”
