Drill Rapper Lil Tuda Was Murdered in Chicago
ABC News says that Lil Tuda, whose real name is Timothy Lockhart, was shot in the head at 4:45 p.m. on the 100 block of South Homan Avenue on Chicago’s West Side on June 17.
The rapper was taken to the Stroger Hospital after he was shot. Another 14-year-old boy, also named Tuda, was also shot multiple times and taken to the same hospital. At the Stroger Hospital in Chicago, Lil was said to be dead. He was only 14 years old at the time of his death. On the other hand, the other 14-year-old boy who was also taken to the Stroger Hospital is currently in critical condition.
Andrew Holmes, a Chicago community activist, talked to the media source about the shooting that happened with the two teenagers over Father’s Day weekend and the Juneteenth holiday. “I’m not happy at all,” Holmes said. What is Father’s Day and Juneteenth all about? Don’t talk to me until we stop this gun murder and Black-on-Black crime and put these people in jail. But we have two babies right here!”
He continued, “Then how will their fathers be happy? How can they make their moms happy? What will make this family happy? It’s not true. “Turn these people in.”
In a tweet posted on Monday, June 19, 16th & 17th District Chicago Police Scanner said that the Chicago drill rapper was reportedly a member of the DMG (Dirty Money Gang), which is a group of Gangster Disciples and Black P Stones.
