Maryland rapper Goonew Big Wick was killed on March 18 after receiving bullet wounds in District Heights. Authorities said the suspect involved in the killing is still on the loose.

According to the Washing Post, Big Wick was murdered on the 3400 block of Walters Lane in the City of District Heights on Friday (Mar. 18) at 5:40 PM. The murder reportedly took place on a residential street just south of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Goonew was rushed to the hospital after people discovered his body on the street. Unfortunately, medics could not save his life and he was declared dead upon arrival.

Goonew’s budding rap career was defined by three songs – “Dance Party,” “Flip Phone,” and “Stain” – all of which took him to new heights of fame following their release.


His last Instagram post was a picture of him, which was taken the day before his tragic death. It is a picture of him in a black and white outfit, looking as if he was cradling cough syrup or a. Pedialyte bottle.
