MTO News spoke to a person close to the rapper who told us, “LaKevia went to her best friend’s birthday @ bowlingalley, a fight for bowling balls happened after which the suspect was waiting for LaKevia 20 minutes in the parking lot before he shot her while she. had left.”
“This is truly atrocity. A young woman lost her life tonight due to an argument over a bowling ball,” said Lt. Ralph Woolfolk, APD Murder Commandant.
