Young Jeezy Arrested For Gun Possession
Young Jeezy is currently in custody for possession of a weapon, police confirmed to Billboard.
The weapon at hand -- an assault rifle -- was found Sunday when the Irvine and Mountain View, Calif., police investigated a shooting that occurred at Wiz Khalifa's concert in Mountain View, Calif. on Friday.
The shooting happened backstage at the Shoreline Amphitheater on Friday, and a 38-year-old man, Eric Johnson, died on Saturday after being shot multiple times.
The victim is said to go by the name Black E, also known as Swoop. His last Instagram (@e_world) post is a flyer to an afterparty in collaboration with Jeezy, which was planned for Friday. Comments on the photo touch on his death, such as "Def rest in power to a good dude, still in shock..." and simply "RIP." Black E had a label of his own, Full Pull Entertainment.
Jeezy is currently on Wiz Khalifa's Under the Influence of Music tour.
The police searched Jeezy's tour bus on Sunday after a warrant was granted in connection with the deadly shooting. Jeezy (real name Jay Jenkins) was arrested along with five others on the scene.
He's being held on $1 million bail.
A representative for Jeezy did not respond when asked for a comment.
