TMZ reported Wednesday that local rapper Tee Grizzley is mourning the loss of his manager and aunt, Jobina Brown, who was shot and killed Tuesday night in Detroit.
The entertainment website said Tee Grizzley was exiting a vehicle when a gunman approached and opened fire, striking Brown, who was sitting in the back seat.
A representative for the rapper, Deneil Mullings, did not immediately return an email message from the Free Press Wednesday.
Detroit Police Cpl. Dan Donakowski confirmed that a fatal shooting occurred at 9 p.m. Tuesday, but said he couldn’t release the name of the victim.
A 41-year-old woman and two men, ages 25 and 34, were in a Chrysler 300 that stopped at a location on the 3000 block of 3 Mile Drive, police said. Shortly after one of the men got out of the vehicle, shots were fired, and the woman was struck.
The driver of the vehicle traveled to the area of Buckingham and Mack, where he met police.
The woman was taken to a hospital but didn’t survive her injuries.
The police department’s homicide unit is investigating. No arrests have been made.
Tee Grizzley emerged on the national music scene in 2017. In May the next year, he celebrated the release of his album “Activated” with about 200 guests at a party at Novi’s 29 Park club.
The album followed his 2017 mixtape “My Moment,” which included the breakout hit “First Day Out.”
