R.I.P., Killa Keise
According to this Vallejo Times Herald story, Keise's body was found at about 11 p.m. last night inside a Pontiac that had veered off the highway and into some bushes:
Inside the crashed vehicle, responders found Henry, who had received a number of gunshot wounds to his upper body, and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
No suspects had been arrested in the case as of Friday afternoon, police said. Mustard said police were not yet ready to reveal further details, including whether Henry was a victim of a random shooting or targeted.
Keise was fairly well-known in the Bay Area rap scene, and stunned tributes poured out on Twitter Friday afternoon from local artists like Kreayshawn, Moe Green, and Jealous Guys member Ayinde. The homicide was Vallejo's 13th this year.
