“This is truly an atrocity,” Atlanta Police Homicide Commander Ralph Woolfolk said, according to the news station. “A young lady has lost her life tonight as a result of an argument over a bowling ball.” “We talk about conflict resolution time and time again, and once again, this is an escalating dispute in which a young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” Woolfolk continued.
According to Revolt, Jackson’s mother had this to say.
“I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I talked to my baby,” her mother Sherina Jackson told the outlet. “I could hear her over the phone crying and screaming then her best friend said she’s not breathing! She continued. “I lost my baby all over a bowling ball.”
The Atlanta Police Department has not released any information about the suspected shooter, but they believe they are close to an arrest based on ballistic and surveillance evidence and eyewitness testimonies from the scene.
Our condolences go out to the families Lakevia Jackson and to the Young Thug.
