The body of rising Atlanta rapper Yung Teddy, 23, (pictured) was discovered at his Austell, Ga., home on Wednesday evening; he had been shot to death. In a cryptic message about his life, the rapper sent out a tweet a day before stating that there were people who wanted him dead, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Teddy, whose actual name was Justin Mitchell, developed quite a large following in the Atlanta area. The young hip-hop performer was promoting a mixed tape, “Right On Time,” and even had a music video for the single “Tru,” which has thus far garnered nearly 40,000 hits on YouTube.
Cobb County police are seeking two black male suspects. The first is described as having a thin build, between 20 and 23 years old, and about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-9. He was last seen wearing a gray sweater, dark pants and a black beanie hat. He was armed with a handgun.
The second suspect is 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6 tall. He was last seen wearing a multicolored beanie hat and a navy blue bandana covering his face.
So far, police are still investigating a motive behind the killing and are asking anyone with information to contact their department at 770-499-3945.
