Rapper JayDaYoungan Fatally Shot In Louisiana, Family Member Recovering From Injuries Following Shooting

Gun violence took JayDaYoungan from his loved ones and fans.

On Wednesday (July 27) it was reported that JayDaYoungan and a family member were allegedly shot in Bogalusa, Louisiana. JayDaYoungan was fatally shot outside of a home on Superior Avenue, located in his hometown. Since the shooting, authorities confirmed the 24-year-old to be dead and a family member is in stable condition. The police statement reads:

“We can now identify the victims as Javorius Scott, A.K.A. Jay da Youngin, and close family member, Kenyatta Scott Sr.” 

The statement adds:

“We can  also confirm that Javorius Scott has died as a result of his injuries. Kenyatta Scott has been transported to another facility and we have been told he is in stable condition. Detectives are currently conducting interviews and working leads. Further information will follow as it becomes available.”

JayDaYoungan’s death follows a list of critical legal issues he faced over the past few years. The rapper was released from prison in June after serving seven months behind bars on charges of possession of a firearm while under indictment for a felony. He pleaded guilty to violating the Federal Gun Control Act. As a part of his release conditions, he was ordered to be on house arrest.


In October 2021, the “Opps” rapper was slammed with charges including child desertion, illegal use of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of persons under 17 years-old and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with weapons present. A month prior to this arrest, he was arrested for second-degree murder and obstruction of justice due to a homicide that occurred in Louisiana which killed an individual and left two others injured.


JayDaYoungan’s loved ones took to Instagram to mourn the death of the Louisiana rapper. JayDaYoungan’s sister who goes by ‘Kenya Janell’ posted a thread of memories of her brother following a sad caption in disbelief of his passing. Kenya Janell said:

“Javorious, no way they took you from me like this I’m sick to my stomach, they wanted this .. they wanted to see you like this bro. I’m so sorry (Pl love you so much!!! Sister is so hurt.
