Yungeen Ace has reportedly survived yet another ambush with deadly results. News4Jax in Florida reports that the 20-year-old rapper was one of four people who were ambushed in a deadly shooting at a hotel in Waycross, Ga. on Sunday morning (March 11).
Although one person died from a gunshot wound, Ace, who was born Kenyatta Bullard, has not been confirmed to have been shot in the incident.
“With respect to the investigation, we will not confirm the relationship between the people shot and Bullard. Bullard cooperated with the investigation, but will not be commenting any further,” said David Haas who serves as Ace’s attorney.
At around 3:30 a.m. EST, Police were called to the Hampton Inn on Brunswick Highway to respond to reports of one group of people being chased by another group who were armed with handguns. That’s when they found Jeremy Brookins, 30, shot near an outdoor pool. A second shooting victim, Dewayne Lamont Scott, was also found with a gunshot wound inside a hotel room. Although Scott was taken to a hospital to be treated and survived, Brookins, unfortunately, passed away.
Details on the incident are scarce at the moment, but police have arrested three Jacksonville residents Mark Johnson, 26, Leroy Whittaker, 18, and Devante Starks, 26, for several gun and drug charges. Haas has confirmed that his client is currently cooperating with authorities and has not been detained.
This is the second time in less than a year Ace has been involved in a shooting that left people dead. In both instances, he was reported to have been the person attacked. In June 2018, he was the sole survivor of a quadruple homicide in Florida. His brother, Trevon, and his three friends were killed in that incident.
