Rapper Julio Foolio Killed During His Own Birthday Celebration

Charles Jones, widely known as rapper Julio Foolio, was fatally shot in Tampa just days after his 26th birthday while he's hosting a party to celebrate his big day, leaving fans in shock and mourning.

AceShowbiz - Florida rapper Julio Foolio, whose real name was Charles Jones, was tragically shot and killed in Tampa on Sunday, June 23. The devastating incident occurred just two days after the artist celebrated his 26th birthday. According to his lawyer, Lewis Fusco, Jones was staying at a Holiday Inn hotel in Tampa when he was ambushed.

Jones, who initially stayed at an Airbnb to host a pool party with friends and fans, was forced to leave the location due to overcrowding. Fusco mentioned that the police shut down the party and cited the number of people exceeding the occupancy limit as the reason for the eviction. Consequently, Jones moved to the Holiday Inn, where the fatal incident occurred in the parking lot.

Tampa Police confirmed the shooting, stating that Jones was among the four victims targeted in the attack. While Jones tragically lost his life, the other three individuals were rushed to the hospital and reported to be in stable condition.

"Yes, I have been his attorney for many years. He was shot and killed in Tampa. I cannot make any statements at this time other than confirming he was killed outside of a Holiday Inn hotel while celebrating his birthday in Tampa this weekend," Fusco stated.

Surveillance footage from the hotel is being reviewed while no suspects have been arrested as of Sunday afternoon. Jones' lawyer emphasized that details are still emerging and requested respect for Mr. Jones and his family during this difficult time.

Jones was a well-known figure in the music industry, particularly for his drill rap videos that often touched on controversial topics, including gang-related violence in Jacksonville. Over the past three years, the rapper had previously survived two shooting incidents in Jacksonville, one of which occurred at his recording studio.

Before the violent encounters, Jones took to on social media to invite friends and fans to join him in celebrating his birthday, a celebration that tragically ended in fatal violence. The Tampa community, fans, and the music world mourn his untimely death as investigators work diligently to uncover details surrounding the tragic event.
