Who is Lil Tjay ?

THREE men have been arrested in connection with a shooting that injured rapper Lil TJay, according to police.

Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced Wednesday that Mohamed Konate has been arrested on attempted murder, armed robbery and weapons charges.

Rapper Lil Tjay was shot in New Jersey in what police called an attempted robbery.

The extent of Lil Tjay’s injuries is unknown, though it is said he underwent emergency surgery.

Suspect

A suspect has been arrested in the attempted murder of New York City rapper Lil Tjay, who was shot just after midnight on Wednesday and underwent emergency surgery.

The Bergen County prosecutor’s office said Mohamed Konate, 27, of New York City, was taken into custody after he allegedly shot the 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Tione Merritt.

Arrested and Charged

Two other men, Jefferey Valdez and Antoine Boyd, were also arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a weapon.

Valdez and Boyd were with Lil Tjay, whose real name is Tione Merritt, at the time of the shooting and were not involved in his being shot.

The Edgewater Police Department said Konate had attempted to commit an armed robbery against Lil Tjay and his entourage.

Shooting

The Run It Up rapper was shot shortly after midnight Wednesday in Edgewater, New Jersey.

Police said multiple 911 calls were received about shots fired near 14 The Promenade.

When they arrived, Lil TJay was found with multiple gunshot wounds and Boyd had a single gunshot wound.

Sources revealed to TMZ that Lil Tjay underwent emergency surgery; however, the extent of his injuries is unknown.

Authorities initially said the shooting did not appear to be random.

The New York native has collaborated with a number of high-profile rappers, including Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Lil Durk, Tyga, Saweetie, and Offset, among others.

News of Lil Tjay’s shooting sent shockwaves through the rap world, as fans quickly sent their prayers on social media.

“Praying for Lil Tjay, I hope he makes it. He has so much left to give to the world. I’m tired of surfing the internet and finding rappers with crazy potential getting lost because someone shot them,” one fan tweeted.
