LaKevia Jackson, the mother of one of Young Thug's children, was shot and killed at Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta.

LaKevia's mother, Sherina Jackson, spoke to local CBS affiliate WRDW, and she revealed that LaKevia was attending her best friend's birthday party at the bowling alley. While there, an argument started over a bowling ball, and LaKevia was shot while leaving the establishment.

Sherina Jackson stated, "I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I talked to my baby. 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."

Atlanta PD hasn't released information about the suspect, but they believe they are close to an arrest based on ballistic and surveillance evidence, along with witness testimony.

More details to come.

Prodigy, one-half of the seminal New York City hip-hop outfit Mobb Deep, died Tuesday at the age of 42. Mobb Deep's publicist confirmed the rapper's death in a statement.

"It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep," the statement read. "Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time."

Prodigy and his Mobb Deep cohort, Havoc, grew up together in Queens, New York City and broke into hip-hop with a raw, vivid and vicious distillation of East Coast gangsta rap. The pair released their first demo together in 1992 under the name Poetical Prophets, which they followed up a year later with their Mobb Deep debut, Juvenile Hall. While that record wasn't well received, their 1995 follow-up The Infamous, remains a hardcore NYC classic and features one of the group's signature songs, "Shook Ones Pt. II."

Prodigy and his Mobb Deep cohort, Havoc, grew up together in Queens, New York City and broke into hip-hop with a raw, vivid and vicious distillation of East Coast gangsta rap. The pair released their first demo together in 1992 under the name Poetical Prophets, which they followed up a year later with their Mobb Deep debut, Juvenile Hall. While that record wasn't well received, their 1995 follow-up The Infamous, remains a hardcore NYC classic and features one of the group's signature songs, "Shook Ones Pt. II."

In 2000, Prodigy launched his solo career with H.N.I.C. and would go on to release an array of solo records and mixtapes, as well as collaborations with producers such as the Alchemist and Big Twins and Un Pacino. In January, Prodigy released his last solo record, Hegelian Dialectic (The Book of Revelation).

Albert Johnson was born in 1974 to a family filled with musicians. His mother, Fatima Johnson – then known as Francis Collins – was once a member of the Sixties girl group the Crystals, while his grandfather, Budd Johnson was an acclaimed bebop saxophonist. Throughout his childhood, however, Johnson struggled with sickle cell and a father who was both a heroin addict and a petty thief. In his 2011 autobiography, My Infamous Life, Johnson recalled the time his father left him in the car while he robbed a jewelry store.

Growing up in New York City during hip-hop's Golden Age, Johnson eventually found his way to the mic in high school. Under the moniker Lord-T (the Golden Child), Johnson managed to score a demo deal at Jive records and earned himself a debut feature on Hi-Five's "Too Young," which appeared on the Boyz N the Hood soundtrack. Not long after, Johnson united with Kejuan "Havoc" Muchita, but when Jive wouldn't re-sign them as a duo, the pair struck out on their own.

By the time Mobb Deep released The Infamous, they'd signed to RCA and Steve Rifkind and Rich Isaacson's formative hip-hop label, Loud Records, whose roster also included NYC stalwarts the Wu-Tang Clan, Big Pun and Dead Prez. Following the success of The Infamous, Mobb Deep continued to hone their hardcore hip-hop sound on a string of highly successful records, 1996's Hell On Earth, 1999's Murda Muzik, and 2001's Infamy.

During the Nineties, Mobb Deep also became embroiled in hip-hop's East Coast vs West Coast feud. Havoc and Prodigy guested on Capone-N-Noreaga's 1995 track, "L.A., L.A.," a response to Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound's "New York, New York," while the pair later became a frequent target for Tupac, who even called out Prodigy's sickle cell on anemia on "When We Ride On Our Enemies."

Mobb Deep's hot streak continued into the 2000s. The group eventually split from Loud and created their own label, Infamous, partnering with Jive for 2004's Amerikaz Nightmare and 50 Cent's G-Unit for 2006's Blood Money. However, the group's tear was cut short in October 2006 when Prodigy was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon. Facing a mandatory sentence of 15 years, the rapper pleaded guilty and received three-and-a-half years in prison. He was released after three in March 2011 and remained on parole until 2014.

Upon his release, Prodigy published his autobiography and reunited with Havoc for a new Mobb Deep song, "Dog Shit," featuring Nas. But within a year, a rift between the longtime partners appeared when Havoc posted a series derogatory and homophobic messages about Prodigy on Twitter. While Havoc initially claimed that his account had been hacked, he ultimately admitted to sending the tweets during an interview with AllHipHop.com, where he also said Mobb Deep was going on "an indefinite hiatus."

While Havoc continued to call out Prodigy, even releasing the diss track "Separated (Real From the Fake)," Prodigy maintained that Mobb Deep would eventually reconcile their differences. And in 2013 they did, embarking on a tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary together. A year later, they released The Infamous Mobb Deep, which featured one disc of new material and another filled with unreleased tracks from their original Infamous sessions.

"Me and Hav got a different type of relationship man," Prodigy told MTV in 2013. "We been through a lot of stuff growing up, just personal stuff. When you dealing with somebody for that long every day, you're gonna have your little squabbles or whatever, it's nothing." He added: "The bottom line is we're smarter than all the BS. Way smarter than that. Trust me, we're still here for a reason, we ain't stupid."

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Law officers searched for a gunman after one man was shot to death and two others wounded in a parking lot at the edge of a Sacramento community college campus, officials said.

The suspect ran from the scene after the shooting near a campus baseball field on Thursday afternoon, and was not found in a sweep of the campus and surrounding neighborhood, Sacramento police Sgt. Doug Morse said.

One victim was declared dead at the scene, another was hospitalized and expected to survive, and the third was only grazed by a bullet and was being questioned by investigators, authorities said.

The shooting began as a verbal dispute between the group of men, one of whom pulled out a gun and fired, said Dustin Poore of Los Rios police, who patrol Sacramento City College.

"A preliminary investigation revealed that a physical altercation between two groups of subjects, further escalated when a knife and gun were produced," police said in a news release late Thursday."It is believed that the victim of the fatal shooting was involved in the altercation." The release added that gang involvement wasn't being ruled out.

Two of the victims were students at the school, but it wasn't immediately clear which two.

It was also unclear whether the gunman has any ties to the school, and police have not given a motive.

The suspect, wearing a white T-shirt and cargo shorts, ran from the scene and remained at large hours later.

The various accounts of the events and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son,” Combs’ rep said in a statement to E! News.

“We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.”

Combs was booked yesterday evening on a felony charge at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center and his bail was set at $160,000, according to his booking sheet.

According to NBC News Investigations, a source noted that the bail amount dropped to $50,000 from the time of the mogul’s arrest to him being booked and released from the Los Angeles County jail.

E! News can also confirm that the jail records show he is due to appear in court on July 13.

The rapper turned businessman was detained on campus shortly after 12:30 p.m. following the incident at the university’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex. Combs’ son Justin currently plays football for the Bruins.

“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” head coach Jim Mora said in a statement released by UCPD. “This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”

Relief: Raymond Levon with the daughter he saved Monikah, ­centre, and her sister Maalika. *Photo by Mikaela Ian Pearman

A father yesterday recounted the dramatic moment he rescued his three-year-old daughter from drowning.

Raymond Levon and his daughters, Monikah, 3 and Maalika, 6, were visiting friends at Brightside Guesthouse when tragedy nearly struck.

He explained to the Bermuda Sun what happened and issued a heartfelt warning to fellow parents: ‘Don’t take your eyes off your kids in the pool.’

Mr Levon recounted: “It was 1:30pm and we were sitting outside. I heard my six-year-old inside — she must have broken a glass or something. I went inside to tend to her real quick. I was helping to clean up and stuff.
“The next minute, I came out and I said, ‘it’s quiet’. Next thing I know, I saw my daughter in the pool.”

He continued: “I just jumped in. She was very flexible and I started doing CPR on her. She [was sick] in my mouth, but I didn’t care. I just wanted to save my daughter.

“After I did CPR, she screamed out my name. The ambulance came and they rushed her to the hospital.”

The incident happened on Saturday and Mr Levon, who is certified in CPR, said Monikah was in hospital for the rest of that day and all day Sunday.

“She’s back to normal [now]”, he added.

Referring back to the moment his daughter almost died, Mr Levon, a mould specialist said: “We were just lounging. We were with friends. I stay in Smith’s but we were here visiting friends who invited us to the pool. I had the girls with me so I came by.”

Asked how long he tended to his older daughter, Mr Levon said: “Probably three to four minutes. When I got to the pool, Monikah was at the surface face down. She wasn’t unconscious, she was going in and out. I brought her back. Her eyes popped out of her head.”

Asked if he would have done anything differently, Mr Levon said: “I wouldn’t have done anything differently. I’m a qualified lifeguard and the first thing is to do CPR on my daughter. She’s very flexible so I knew she was going in and out of consciousness.

“There were other people out here but they had left so it was just me and her out here. She had taken her clothes off and had the lifeguard ring.”

Offering a warning to other parents, Mr Levon said: “I would say to keep your eyes on your kids. They are precious. They came into this world for a reason. Just love them. Keep a good eye on them.”

Mr Levon and his girls were staying at Brightside for the rest of the week to relax after the incident.

Jay-Z and Beyonce came out for the ‘Justice for Trayvon Martin’ vigil held in New York City's Harlem neighborhood on Saturday (July 20). The rally took a week after Martin's killer George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of the Florida teen.

Also present at the ‘Justice for Trayvon Martin’ Harlem rally was Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton and renown civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton. Both gave their opinions on the verdict and what they will do moving forward.

“George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight,” Fulton told those who had gathered. “My son died without even knowing who his killer was ... Today it was my son. Tomorrow it might be yours.” A similar sentiment has resonated across America in the days following the trial. Picket signs and tweets from the likes of President Obama to celebrities to the general public have all contemplated the notion that it "could have been me," galvanizing peaceful civil rights protests.

“Trayvon was no burglar,” Fulton said, addressing the racial profiling that lead to the tragedy. “He had a drink and some candy. He had every right to be in that area.”

“We’re going to make sure there is an aggressive civil rights investigation,” said Sharpton of the future. “We are trying to get justice, not get something off our chests.”

Beyonce is asking fans to sign a petition for the civil rights case against George Zimmerman.

"We have made so much progress and cannot allow hatred and racism to divide us. When we all join together, people of all races, we have the power to change the world we live in," read the note on Beyonce's website. "We must fight for Trayvon the same way the generation before us fought for Emmett Till."

Shots rang out, causing panic and chaos as hundreds of mourners were leaving a Catholic church on the South Side following funeral services Monday for a slain reputed gang member. As people scattered for exits, a woman knocked Deborah Echols-Moore, 59, to the floor and fell atop her. Her shoes were thrown off her feet. When she stood back up, she fled barefoot out a door.

“When I came outside, you still can hear shooting. Boom! Boom! Boom! I still ran…people was running behind me,” the longtime CTA employee said not long after the 12:30 p.m. shooting. “You didn’t know which way to go or what to do. All I knew to do was run for my life.” Chicago police said one man was killed, another critically injured in the bloodshed at St. Columbanus Church. Police identified both as Gangster Disciples members and convicted felons, illustrating once again the high risks of gang membership in a year in which rising homicides have brought Chicago unwanted national attention. GDs alone make up more than a quarter of the city’s approximately 470 homicide victims. About 60 percent of this year’s homicide victims were gang members, according to department statistics. Police were still investigating who was responsible for the shooting, but investigators said the neighborhood has long been rife with conflict between GDs and rival Black Disciples. Illustrating the sudden, often unpredictable nature of the violence, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy just a couple of hours earlier was touting the department’s crime-fighting strategies in tamping down the city’s rate of violence since earlier in the year when homicides soared. Through Sunday, homicides have risen more than 19 percent over the same period a year earlier, department records show. Rev. Corey Brooks, a well-known South Side pastor who officiated at Monday’s services for James Holman, 32, said a church would have been off-limits for gangbangers at one time. “Now we are living at a day and time where these younger criminals have no regard for life or for street rules,” he said. Charles Childs, a co-owner of the A.A. Rayner and Sons Funeral Home across the street from the church, held an uneventful visitation for Holman on Sunday. On Monday he said he saw the gunman firing his weapon as he came down the front steps outside the church. “No place is safe,” he said. “It’s just despicable.”
