Lil Wayne and Mack Maine hung out with a childhood friend from Hollygrove just a day before he was killed by police. Family and friends of Keith “Magik” Atkinson are looking for answers as to why the innocent bystander was gunned down by a New Orleans law official during a shoplifting emergency call, especially since the victim wasn’t the culprit of the theft.

An official report from NOLA’s Times-Picayne publication reads: Police arrived at the store around 9:20 a.m., responding to a call of a man in a blue shirt stealing a case of juice, according to witnesses who were in the store at the time. Atkinson, who was wearing a blue shirt, was standing near the store as the officers pulled up, witnesses said. But Atkinson wasn’t the shoplifter, several people said in interviews with | The Times-Picayune, making his shooting death all the more grievous. It was another man who showed up at the store, took a case of Little Hug fruit juice and yelled at the cashier who had scolded a child for spilling the juice drink in the store, said Royleisha Wesley, 21, who was at the store with her boyfriend Zaairvert Williams, 20.

Lil Wayne and Mack Maine took to Twitter to mourn over the loss of their close friend.
