American rapper Lil TJay was one of two people shot dead in New Jersey early Wednesday morning, just weeks after she said it would be a "good summer."
According to mypost.com, a rapper born in the Bronx has been hit several times on The Promenade in Edgewater.
The Bergen County Prosecutor said police responded to reports of shots from the area just after midnight.
Upon her arrival, she discovered 21-year-old Lil TJay, real name Tione Marriot, with numerous gunshot wounds.
Officials did not disclose its terms, but tmz.com said Lil TJay had undergone an emergency operation.
Officials said the shooting took place after Mohamed Konate tried to stab Lil TJay, Boyd, and the rapper's third person, 24-year-old Jeffrey Valdez.
Konate was arrested later on Wednesday by detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office and the New York Police Department.
He was charged with three cases of attempted murder, three cases of armed robbery, two cases of possession of a firearm for an illegal purpose and a fourth-degree attack.
