A Houston rapper who traveled to Atlanta to perform for the NBA All-Star weekend was sadly shot and killed during an interstate shooting Friday morning (March 5th).
Chucky Trill (born Corey Detiege) was fatally shot while on I-85 South close to Jimmy Carter Boulevard. His manager of Boneafide Entertainment confirmed the news with 11Alive.
Multiple lanes on the highway were closed for several hours shortly after. Gwinnett police responded to a call about the highway shooting and discovered Chucky Trill in a car on the side of the road. He was rushed to the hospital where he passed away. He suffered at least one gunshot wound.
While there were other people in the car, bystanders couldn’t describe the suspect’s vehicle. Police say the incident involved two cars.
Gwinnett Police Department Public Information Officer, Cpl. Collin Flynn said,
“Obviously these types of shootings are very concerning for the police department. Not only do you have the two vehicles that are involved in this shooting, but you also have multiple people that are driving on the interstate that could also be victims to these types of crimes.”
Boneafide Entertainment also said the victim’s father was in the 90s group Trinity Garden Cartel in Houston.
Atlanta has seen a total of seven highway shootings this year so far.
Prayers for Chucky Trill’s family, friends, and loved ones.
