Young Jeezy Arrested Due to Possible Connection with Fatal Shooting

0

Atlanta-based rapper Young Jeezy is in police custody after a gun thought to have been used in a fatal shooting on Friday was found on his tour bus.

Eric Johnson was shot five times backstage in Mountain View, California last week during a stop on Wiz Khalifa’s multi-artist Under the Influence of Music Tour, which features Jeezy alongside the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan and DJ Drama.

The 38-year-old victim died in a local hospital on Saturday morning.

Cops investigating the incident raided Jeezy’s vehicle on Sunday, when an assault rifle believed to belong to the Put On hitmaker was uncovered, according to TMZ.com.

Authorities suspect the weapon was used to gun down the victim.

Jeezy, real name Jay Jenkins, and a number of his entourage members were arrested on gun possession charges following the bus search.

The hip-hop star, who was forced to miss his set at Sunday night’s show in Irvine, California as a result of the legal drama, is currently being held on $1 million bail.
