The Home of Tony Yayo’s Mother Riddled With Bullets
The Queens, N.Y. home of G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo’s mother was riddled with bullets Wednesday (April 18) evening. According to the New York Daily News, Yayo’s 32-year-old sister and her two-year-old daughter were home at the time of the shooting, although neither was injured. “I think they did it to send a message, but we are innocent people,” said his sister, who requested that she not be identified. “Either me or my daughter could have been dead.” About 12 shots were fired from the street, piercing the home’s front door and picture window. When Yayo’s mother arrived at the residence she asked her daughter, “Is it safe for us to be here?” Authorities were unclear as to whether the shooter was on foot or in a vehicle. No witnesses have come forward and the case has been referred to the NYPD’s entertainment unit. Yayo was arrested on March 24 for allegedly assaulting the 14 year-old son of rival James “Jimmy Henchmen” Rosemond on a Manhattan street.
