Mississippi rapper Lonnie “Lil Lonnie” Taylor was one of two people killed. Two others were injured in three separate shooting incidents during a 24-hour period.
Hours after posting a picture of himself on Instagram and Snapchat, Taylor, 22, was dead Sunday night in Jackson, Miss., his hometown. He was shot multiple times as he drove his SUV. His car stopped when it crashed into a home. The female passenger in his car was not injured.
The Jackson Police Department said no suspects had been identified. There was no known motive either. Taylor had big plans for the money he planned to make as an up-and-coming artist.
Taylor’s 2015 song Colors put him on the map nationally.
