Young Jeezy Arrested in Connection With Fatal Shooting

Young Jeezy Arrested After Fatal Rap Concert Shooting

A fatal concert shooting led to a major firearms bust Sunday when rapper Young Jeezy and several tour employees were arrested on possession charges. Police obtained warrants for the "Under the Influence of Music" tour—headlined by Wiz Khalifa—after 38-year-old promoter Eric Johnson was shot five times and killed backstage Friday.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Jeezy and five crew members were busted with weapons—including an assault rifle—backstage less than two days later.

Police have not formally linked the shooting and subsequent arrests, but the LA Times suggests the two could be related based on the $1 million bail a judge set for Jeezy.
