Popular rapper Lil Tjay was shot dead by a lone gunman outside his luxury New Jersey apartment building yesterday. Police believe the shooting was “staged,” but luckily doctors expect Lil Tjay to survive the encounter, Media Take Out has learned.
Now police have arrested the man they believe was responsible for the shooting and two of Lil Tjay’s associates.
Prosecutors told the media, including Media Take Out, that yesterday “officials found 21-year-old Tione “Lil TJay” Merritt with multiple gunshot wounds and Antoine Boyd with a single gunshot wound.”
Police claim the motive for the shooting was robbery. Authorities stated: “MOHAMED KONATE was attempting to carry out an armed robbery on Tione Merritt, Jeffrey Valdez and Antoine Boyd when the shooting occurred. JEFFREY VALDEZ and ANTOINE BOYD, who were dating Tione Merritt, were both determined to be in possession of an unlawful weapon.”
While three people were arrested, only one is considered a suspect. Mohamed has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, attempted robbery and possession of a weapon. The other two men, who were friends/colleagues of Lil Tjay, have been charged with gun possession. Mohamed faces life imprisonment if convicted of all charges.
