NBA YoungBoy is currently jailed in Louisiana on a possible parole violation, but his latest legal update comes from a May 13th shooting in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The shooting claimed the life of a bystander, Mohamed Jradi, 41, and injured four others, including NBA’s girlfriend and a 5 year old boy. Over the weekend, The Miami Herald reported that NBA YoungBoy is refusing to cooperate with Miami-Dade police in identifying his attackers.
According to the Miami Herald, NBA’s lawyer confirmed that his client did not reveal any information to detectives, blaming a “miscommunication.”
“We’re doing everything possible to find closure for the victim’s family,” Miami-Dade Detective Lee Cowart said.
Before his set at the increasingly popular Rolling Loud Hip Hop Festival, NBA YoungBoy was ambushed, presumably by a rival rapper, which resulted in volleys of gunfire from both sides. NBA still performed at Rolling Loud that day, despite the fallout from the shooting.
The Miami Herald has also reported that local authorities are scouring social media posts from NBA’s camp and possible suspects for any leads on the perpetrators of the shooting.
Immediately following the shooting, NBA and his label offered to pay the costs of Jradi’s funeral, although NBA’s lawyer could not confirm if the Jradi family accepted the offer.
