Young Thug’s baby mama, LaKevia Jackson, was shot and killed outside an Atlanta bowling alley recently. Thugger and Jackson have a 14-year-old son together. The murder made headlines and was said to be related to a gang dispute.

A suspect has now been arrested in relation to the case. Jackson was at her friend’s birthday party. A fight over the bowling ball led to the shooting. TMZ has now reported that a man named Joshua Fleetwood was arrested and charged with felony murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Atlanta police immediately moved Fleetwood to the Fulton County Jail, where he will await a court date. The March 17 murder shocked the rap world. The killer allegedly waited for LaKevia in the parking lot where he pulled the trigger after she exited the bowling alley.

No new information about whether the shooting was gang-related has come out. The 31-year-old could have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. More information will be revealed as the investigation continues.

At the time of the killing, investigators revealed that there was only one suspect in the killing. It appears they now have their man. Police had been encouraging the man to turn himself in for some time.

The tragic killing of LaKevia Jackson cannot be undone. Justice may well be served, though. Joshua Fleetwood is in custody, and it is only a matter of time before we know what really happened to LaKevia Jackson.
