Flyysoulja (real name Alex Venegas) from the viral sensation Island Boys recently got put in a very difficult spot. A raid recently occurred at his rented Florida home. There, Andrew James Thomas was arrested after his alleged involvement in a murder.

Venegas is hoping to do something to help the victim’s family after learning of the horrible news. The TikTokker wants to be a positive role model. Flyysoulja has declared that the gang violence has to stop.

The Island Boy was at home on Monday when the raid took place. Alex told police that his friend asked him to hide a gun for him. Flyysoulja refused to offer any assistance, per TMZ.

Police booked Thomas for gun possession, a probation violation in a separate robbery case, and first-degree murder after the drive-by shooting of a child in Palm Beach. Flyysoulja is taking the situation incredibly seriously.

Flyysoulja said he has a daughter of his own. The chilling murder of another child shook him on a personal level. Now, he intends to use his platform to be more vocal about gang violence.

The Island Boys have received plenty of heat for their kitschy act. Even former WWE Champion The Iron Sheik has called them out. A stand against gang violence is one thing just about everyone can agree on.
