Last night, New York rapper Lil Tjay was shot several times after midnight in Edgewater, NJ.
According to TMZ, law enforcement arrested three men in connection with the shooting. Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office revealed that one of the men, Mohamed Konate, attempted to rob Lil Tjay and two other men who were with him. The attempted robbery resulted in Kontae shooting the “Calling My Phone” curator multiple times at a Chipotle restaurant while the second victim was shot only once at an Exxon gas station.
Konate was charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder. The other two men that were with Tjay were also arrested for being in possession of a firearm. They were charged with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
Tjay was rushed to emergency surgery following the shooting and is said to be doing better.
