Tragic news coming out of New Orleans…
The two young men were discovered shortly after midnight Sunday inside a car near the corner of Pauger and North Miro streets in the city’s 7th Ward. Both had been shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, New Orleans police said. Less than an hour later, a man was shot to death in the Seabrook neighborhood of New Orleans East.
Police have not released any information about a motive or possible suspects in either fatal shooting.
In a post on her social media page, Toya wrote, “Help me Lord???? I will never understand this. #stoptheviolence #ineverfeltpainlikethisbefore #riptomybrothers #icantbelievethis #prayformyfamily ???”
Toya’s daughter, Reginae Carter, wrote, “I lost two of my uncles last night ? I’m speechless. I’m hurt. I’m devastated. What in the world is going on in this world?”
There’s been a huge outpouring of love, support, and prayers for Toya Wright and her family during this tragedy.
Tiny Harris offered her condolences writing, “Sending my condolences & love to my sis @toyawright & her whole family. Didn’t get to know Josh as well as I did Rudy but so glad I got to spend months around Rudy day in & day out while filming Tiny & Toya. He was a really cool dude. We all love him. They both will be truly missed. I’m here for u T & Praying for strength & peace for u & the family. Love u much! ?? #SadDayInTheA #AndTheNO?”
T.I. addressed the senseless violence in the black community writing, “RIP bros. For us to really have an argument in the BLM movement WE MUST show that Black Lives Matter to Us!!!!! We All WE GOT!!!! My family’s condolences. #StickTogether #BeUnited #StopFallingForIT”
Even K. Michelle set her differences with Toya aside to extend her prayers and words of comfort.
There is no hurt heaven can’t heal.
My thoughts, love, and prayers are with Toya and her family.
