The late rapper JayDaYoungan’s father has provided additional information regarding the horrific incident just a few days after the rapper was shot and died in Louisiana. Kenyatta Scott, who was wounded alongside JayDaYoungan on Wednesday and is still in the hospital, told TMZ that he and his kid were “ambushed by five gunmen.”
Scott said that the couple was relaxing in their Louisiana front yard when a black truck drew up and three armed individuals got out. Two more people approached Scott and JayDaYoungan from the side of their home, and the group of guys opened fire as they tried to flee inside for protection. While his son was hit at least eight times, Scott believes he was shot twice in the arm.
Scott continued by stating that neither did he think that JayDaYoungan knew the shooters or that the incident was gang-related. The 24-year-old Louisiana native was slain in a gunshot on Wednesday just before 6 o’clock. Complex received confirmation from Bogalusa Police Chief Kendall Bullen on the information in a Facebook post.
“We can now identify the victims as Javorius Scott, A.K.A. JayDaYoungan and close family member Kenyatta Scott Sr,” Bogalusa PD wrote.
