*The family of a concert promoter who was killed in 2014 is accusing rapper Young Jeezy of pulling the trigger.
Eric Johnson was killed in August 2014 after being shot at least five times backstage at Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa’s concert in Mountain View, CA. According to TMZ, the family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Jeezy claiming that an eyewitness told Mountain View PD the shooter looked like Jeezy … and the years later the witness repeated that claim in a deposition.
The family also says the same witness picked Jeezy out of a photo lineup as the shooter, and that a second witness described the shooter to a police sketch artist who drew someone that looked “eerily similar to the way Young Jeezy looked” the night of the shooting.
The family says it was never given a direct explanation as to who was suspected of the crime or why Jeezy was never charged. Johnson’s kids are suing for funeral expenses and other damages.
