New York Rapper Lil Tjay was shot shortly after midnight on Tuesday night in New Jersey. The 22-year-old “Brothers” Rapper was one of two injured in a shooting in Edgewater New Jersey. TMZ reported that the 22-year-old rapper was one of two people shot at City Place, a shopping and luxury residential complex.
Police responded to a call at 12:08 a.m. about a shooting at a Chipotle Restaurant inside City Place where they discovered a 22-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. Shortly after officers also responded to a nearby Exxon Station where they found another 22-year-old victim with a gunshot wound.
Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital with Tjay undergoing emergency surgery. He is reportedly in stable condition. Prosecutors shared that the shooting “does not appear to be [a] random act,” indicating that someone targeted Tjay or the other victim or both. Police are investigating a red Dodge Durango at the scene with a bullet hole in the driver’s window. In an eerie coincidence Tjay had recently tweeted earlier this month: “Dis gon be a good summer… ”
We wish Tjay a speedy recovery.
