Joshua Fleetwood charged with murder
Fulton County Jail

Atlanta police have arrested and charged 25-year-old Joshua Fleetwood with felony murder in the shooting death of LaKevia Jackson

The 31-year-old mother was attending a friend’s birthday celebration at Metro Fun Center in Southwest Atlanta on March 17. 

Investigators say Joshua was at the Metro Fun Center on a date when he got into a dispute with the Jackson family, who was bowling on an adjacent lane. 

Once everyone had left the building, police say two women began to argue and someone from each side of the argument got guns from their cars and began shooting. 

One shooter got into a car and continued to fire as they drove away.

LaKevia was shot multiple times during the exchange of gunfire and died from her injuries.

Lt. Ralph Woolfolk, APD’s Homicide Commander said Fleetwood has a wrap sheet that includes 16 arrests on charges of fraud, narcotics, fleeing police, and criminal trespass.

He is now facing charges of felony murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. 

Joshua Fleetwood is currently being held in the Fulton County Jail and waived his first court appearance in front of a judge.

LaKevia Jackson shared a child with Atlanta-based, Grammy Award-winning rapper Young Thug.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to her family.
