On Friday morning, Houston rapper Chucky Trill (real name Corey Detiege) was shot and killed on the Atlanta interstate. He was found inside a vehicle around 3 a.m. and later died at the hospital. He was 33-years-old.
A police spokesman says the northbound lanes of I-85 were closed off for more than two hours to allow for an investigation. Authorities believe a person from another vehicle shot into Detiege’s car.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Detiege was the son of a popular Houston rapper from the ‘90s, D of Trinity Garden Cartel.
“Obviously these types of shootings are very concerning for the police department,” said spokesman Cpl. Collin Flynn. “Not only do you have the two vehicles involved in the shooting, but you also have multiple people that are driving on the interstate that could also be victims in these types of crimes.”
“We were just in the club last night saying how we was gone turn up this Sunday,” she wrote in a caption. “wow. Rest peacefully Chucky.”
Ex-baseball player and current head of Houston label 1501 Certified Entertainment, Carl Crawford, also made his own IG post saying, “so shocked to hear this we was just all together having a good time.”
