Toya Wright is speaking out about the tragic death of her two brothers Ryan “Rudy” Johnson, 24, and Joshua “Fish” Johnson, 31. On July 31, they were discovered shot to death inside a car in New Orleans’ seventh ward on July 31. The investigation is ongoing.
In a new interview, Toya recalls the heartbreaking incident:
I got a call from my sister-in-law and she was like, ‘Your brothers just got shot’.
At the time, Toya was hosting a party in Baton Rouge:
The music was loud and I’m [thinking], this can’t be real.
On the night of the shooting, she began to call her relatives but no one would pick up the phone.
I guess they didn’t want to tell me what was really going on.
It was the worst news ever. Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.
