Update: Man Arrested in Connection with Murder of Mother of Young Thug’s Son

The Atlanta Police Department revealed that 25-year-old Joshua Fleetwood was arrested for the murder of Lakevia Jackson, who is the mother of Young Thug’s 14-year-old son. Jackson was shot and killed outside of the Metro Fun Center in Atlanta on March 17 following an argument.

Homicide Commander Ralph Woolfolk commented on Fleetwood’s arrest, stating, “We are happy that Mr. Fleetwood is in our custody.” Woolfolk also addressed the shooting incident, as he stated that Jackson’s family was bowling in a lane next to Fleetwood, who was on a date, when an argument happened over a bowling ball. Woolfolk explained, “This was simply an escalated dispute, as depicted on video.”

Fleetwood was booked on charges of felony murder at the Fulton County Jail.

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.
