Lor Scoota was killed shortly after hosting a charity event in his hometown of Baltimore. At age 23, he had emerged as one of the few Bmore rappers with a chance of making it out.
Lor Scoota, whose real name is Tyriece Watson, sustained at least one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The Baltimore Police Department gathered from witnesses on the scene that Scoota was driving eastbound on Moravia Road at Harford Road when a suspect stepped into the street and opened fire at him. Police authorities responded to the incident at approximately 6:56 p.m.
Many well-known rappers, including Meek Mill, The Game, Tate Kobang, Shy Glizzy, and Yo Gotti, have gone on social media to pay their respects to Scoota and express their grievances, as have former Ravens WR Torrey Smith and Baltimore-hailing Nuggets guard Will Barton.
Rest in peace lor scoota
