Lakevia Jackson, who has a son with Atlanta native and rapper Young Thug, was killed outside the Metro Fun Center following a dispute over a bowling ball.
Atlanta Police Department said Friday afternoon they did detain one person in connection with the case and said she is cooperating. They said she is not a suspect at this time. Earlier in the day, police did not release the name of another person suspected in the shooting, but urged for him to step forward.
Police said they got the call just before 11 p.m. to respond to the 1900 block of Metropolitan Pkwy. APD said a group of people were at the Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta when a fight about a bowling ball escalated.
Authorities reveled that the suspected shooter after the argument waited outside the bowling alley for 20 mins awaiting Ms. Jackson's exit before he opened fire on her killing her.
It has been reported that Jackson shared a child with Young Thug, and her social media accounts featured photos of her son and the rapper.
A representative for Young Thug said he would not be releasing a statement.
“We talk about conflict resolution time and time again, and once again, this is an escalated dispute in which a young lady has lost her life,” Lt. Ralph Woolfolk told 11Alive.
Woolfolk said the investigation is still underway.
