NBA Youngboy Under Investagation For 2019 Shooting In Florida

NBA Youngboy Is Under FBI Investigation For 2019 Shooting.

The deadly 2019 shooting involving rapper NBA Youngboy is now being investigated by federal and state agents in Louisiana and Florida.

The shooting transpired in May 2019 when NBA Youngboy and his entourage were leaving the Trump International Beach Resort in Florida, in Sunny Isles Beach. A black Cadillac Escalade pulled up and began to open fire on the crew, seemingly him being the target. 

While the rapper was not harmed in the shooting, his then-girlfriend Kaylyn Long was wounded, and a bullet grazed a 5-year-old child who was nearby. Sadly, 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi lost his life during the shooting when a bullet entered his vehicle and struck him in the head. 

While it is unclear why Youngboy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, is at the center of the investigation. A source close to the situation told WAFB that state and federal law enforcement in Louisiana has been working closely with authorities in Florida to look further into the case. 

No arrests have been made in the shooting.
