AceShowbiz - The suspect in the shooting death of Young Thug's baby mama LaKevia Jackson has been charged with murder. A man named Joshua Fleetwood Atlanta was charged with felony murder after being arrested.
According to Lt. Ralph Woolfolk, Atlanta Police Department's Homicide Commander, the 25-year-old man has been charged with felony murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. "We talk about conflict resolution time and time again, and once again, this is an escalated dispute over a bowling ball," said the officer.
Joshua is currently being held in the Fulton County Jail. According to Lt. Ralph, Joshua has been arrested 16 times before on an array of charges, including fraud, narcotics, fleeing police and criminal trespass.
LaKevia, who shares a son named Kyvion with the "Go Crazy" rapper, was shot and killed at the Metro Fun Center on Thursday, March 17 around 11 P.M. According to police reports, Joshua was on a date at the entertainment venue, which has a skating rink, bowling alley and more, when he got into an argument with LaKevia's family, who was bowling on an adjacent lane.
Police stated that once everyone had left the building, two women began to argue and someone from each side of the argument got guns from their cars and began shooting. One shooter got into a car and continued to fire as they drove away. LaKevia was then shot during the exchange of gunfire. She died at the age of 31.
"This is truly an atrocity. A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball," Lt. Ralph said at the press conference at the time. "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. We know who you are so go ahead and turn yourself in."
CBS reporter Tori Cooper, who spoke to LaKevia's mother, Sherina Jackson, said that LaKevia went to her best friend's party at Metro Fun Center and got into a dispute over a "bowling ball" with another partygoer. According to the local news reporter, the suspect "waited 20 mins in the parking lot for LaKevia before he shot her while she was leaving."
