Up and coming Houston rapper Chucky Trill was shot and killed on an Atlanta Interstate Thursday, and now police are looking for witnesses.  His longtime girlfriend and friends pour out their hearts inside.

 

Sadly, All-Star weekend kicked off with some tragic news. 

 

According to reports, rapper Chucky Trill (real name Corey Detiege) traveled to Atlanta to perform during a virtual event and to also make music connections during the NBA All-Star weekend, according to Boneafide Management.

Around 3AM Friday morning, Chucky was shot on Interstate 85 near Jimmy Carter Blvd. Police said the 33-year-old rapper, who was inside a stopped vehicle, was shot at least once and died at the hospital.

ABC 13 Houston reports that police believe there are definitely witnesses, and they’re asking those witnesses to come forward:

Chucky Trill, whose real name is Corey Detiege, died at a local hospital, police said in a news release. The motive for the shooting was still unknown and no description of a shooter’s vehicle was immediately available, police said.

Investigators believe there may be witnesses to the shooting or the events that preceded it and are asking that they contact police.

Chucky’s father was a rapper in the group Trinity Garden Cartel back in the 90s under Rap-A-Lot Record. Chucky was also managed by Bone of Boneafied Entertainment, who also manages rapper Bun B.

 

 

 

 

Chucky often posted about his girlfriend, Cherish, and even made her his leading lady in his video he dropped on Valentine’s Day:

 

Now, Cherish has been posting her own memories of him and sadly pouring out her grief after his death:

 

We send our condolences to his family, friends and fans during this tragic time.
