Bronx Rapper Lil T-Jay Shot In Jersey - Multiple Arrest Made

New York rapper, Lil T jay, was shot at a shopping promenade in Edgewater just after midnight in jersey. The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office called this an attempted robbery against the rapper and two of his friends. Prosecutors announced the arrest of Mohamed Konate, 27, of New York City, on charges of attempted murder, armed robbery and weapons offenses.

They are accusing the man of firing at the rapper, as well as his bro Jeff, who is 24, and Ant, 22, both of the Bronx, who were with t jay at the time of the shooting. Tjay was struck multiple times, and so his bro ant got injured in the shooting as well.

Prosecutors had said earlier, that one victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but was by then described as stable, while the other victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries and is in "good" condition. But the later announcement did not directly clarify whether t jay was the one described as having suffered the more severe injuries between the two victims. jeff and ant were also arrested following the incident on weapons possession charges and were both being held in Bergen County Jail. As of 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Konate was awaiting extradition to New Jersey. T.M.Z reported that t jay underwent emergency surgery. Edgewater police and the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office were at the shopping center after 7 a.m. Wednesday, inspecting a red Dodge Durango with a bullet hole in the driver's window, as well as a blood-stained towel. The shooting happened at the western end of City Place, a mixed-use development on a former Hudson River industrial site with stores and restaurants on the first floor and five stories of high-end condominiums above.

The complex is usually bustling in the evening but dies down considerably after the restaurants and stores close. The complex has 24-hour security with guards in cars patrolling the facility. Residents from the area were surprised to hear about what happened, as these type of situations are uncommon in the area.

This isn’t the first time ant and t jay got arrested together. In 2020, T jay was collared in Brooklyn after a Cadillac Escalade he was riding in was pulled over. cops found a cache of guns. T-jay, 19 at the time, was in the black S.U.V with four others, when cops stopped the car in East New York, after the driver allegedly failed to signal when switching lanes. Inside the Cadillac, cops found four loaded pistols — a black Ruger, a black Taurus, a tan Sig Sauer and a black and tan Smith & Wesson — which were stashed under a cup holder in the third row. The Smith & Wesson was reported stolen by the Columbia Police Department in South Carolina. Police found a backpack behind the front passenger seat filled with marijuana. Lil Tjay was charged alongside Ant, and 3 others. the Bronx-born rapper, who is signed to Columbia Records, was arraigned New Year’s Eve of 2021, on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of marijuana. a $50,000 bond was posted by celebrity bondsman Ira Judelson. T jay was back outside. For this current situation though, it is said that t jay should be good and he is already recovering. Get well. We will see what will come of this situation. But as always, stay low and thanks for watching.
