The two young men were discovered shortly after midnight Saturday inside a car near the corner of Pauger and North Miro streets in the city’s 7th Ward. Both had been shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, New Orleans police said. Less than an hour later, a man was shot to death in the Seabrook neighborhood of New Orleans East.

Police have not released any information about a motive or possible suspects in either fatal shooting.

Other media are identifying the brothers as Rudy and Josh Johnson.

Wright, a New Orleans native, is the ex-wife of Lil Wayne and is one of the stars of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” on We TV. She is also a musician, author and owner of a Magazine Street boutique. She could not be immediately reached for comment.

Toya was at an event when she heard of the tragic news.

Singer K. Michelle took to social media where she put their issues aside and offered prayer and condolences to Toya and her family.


Toya & her daughter Reginae have both taken to social media to express their pain and hurt during this hard time.

I’ll give anything to laugh with you again. #myrudeboy #icantbelievethisisreal #RipRudy #stoptheviolence 😢💔
