Jadarius Jenkins

Rapper Jeezy's son, Jadarius Jenkins, was reportedly involved in a violent confrontation that left one man dead in Atlanta.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Jenkins, 22, suffered a slash to the face during a confrontation with a 37-year-old man on Sunday morning. The violent altercation ended in gunfire.

Officers were called to the scene where they discovered a man suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Jenkins was also transported to a hospital and treated for his facial wound.

According to Atlanta PD, Jeezy's son was acting in self-defense. Police are also investigating a pair of burglaries that may be linked to the shooting.

Jadarius was questioned by police and released.

"We are grateful to law enforcement for releasing Jadarius after their preliminary investigation," his attorney Drew Findling tells TMZ. "He continues to receive medical treatment for the injury he endured during the incident."

Jeezy has yet to comment on the incident. The rapper made headlines a few years ago when he physically assaulted his then-18-year-old son for talking back to him.

    I had to sound it out but I like it.

  • Desi

    In the words of the late Arnold Jackson(Gary Coleman),"Clothes DO make the man". Handsome!?!? Y'all know DAMN WELL if that boy wasn't Jeezy's son and wasn't dressed in that tailored suit, he would look like the average hood bull. Glad he's ok, but GTFOH with the handsome comments.

  • Missy

    I find some scars to be quite sexy.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Gary Coleman(whom I encountered at a bank once) is one of the reasons I entered the entertainment industry.

    Back to the article this reminds me when I was robbed once. Thank God I made it out alive.

  • Desi

    Glad you made it out alive, but I am a realist and the comment still stands. GOD BLESS.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Thanks! It was most definitely an angel that was watching over me.

  • Yardgirl

    Don’t know all of the details but it seems as if it was (a) kill or (b) get killed. I’ll take (a) for $500 Alex. No judgment from me I have a 23 year old son and it’s not easy out in this world. Unfortunately he may live with his decision forever but at least he’s alive.

  • SpiceGirl

    Happy Holidays everyone...enjoy and be safe......

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I agree!

  • tintin

    handsome boy. now he got a whole slash across his face.

    i don't get it, when you rich, why you act a fool. If money in my life, i have no reason to hang around hood boogers.
    Guarantee you'll never hear of P Diddy kids in this type of situation.

  • SpiceGirl

    Ty sis

  • Bossy704

    A few weeks ago there was a similar incident in Charlotte where a robbery was attempted on a local artist that ended with him shooting the perpetrator in a Walmart. These young men are getting bold in their robbery attempts and want the lifestyle and bling without having the skillset to earn it. I sympathize with these young men and I believe Jadarious was minding his business. Disenfranchised youth will just get worse...

  • Yoni7

    Just came back from New Orleans literally a week ago (bday was 12-12) and that's ALL I DID was eat! Seems like I ONLY EAT when I go on vacay. LOL Every pic is of a plate of food. LOL Even had the baby eating fried oysters because he thought they were chicken nuggets (he won't eat nothin' else). And I'm a greedy gut too like you wouldn't believe.

  • KLo

    he looks like a ruffian

  • SpiceGirl

    Awww happy belated Bday...I hope you enjoyed your time in New Orleans......did you tell the baby what it was AFTER he ate the fried oysters? They actually aren't that bad....ive had them once and they were good.

  • Yoni7

    Thanks. I did enjoy my time. The baby is 15 months. Still very much a baby with 8 teeth. LOL We eat seafood, so it wasn't like trickery per se'. We were just glad he was eating something. LOL

  • SpiceGirl

    I know that's right.....lol

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He's the kid of a celebrity, of course he's innocent. Now here, boys and girls, is where ATL celebs supporting political candidates comes in handy. Jeezy's son will get special treatment throughout the entire investigation and will not be linked to any alleged robberies. Thanks Mayor Lance-Bottoms.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Who you gonna floss on when people in your parent's tax bracket aren't impressed? So, one must go back to the hood to stunt on the haters.

  • Tara Jaszczuk

    This didn't happen in Atlanta. This happened in warner robins

  • monique

    What if he was being robbed though. The man may have known who he was and knew he had money. It isn't known that he was looking for trouble.

  • Waya Hedia

    fighting, murder, crime, it's a black thing I guess.

  • Allihave2say

    Well every race has their thing, I guess.
    Whites have incest beasti@lity, child trafficking, mass murders, school shootings, in-house family murders, the murders of Native Americans, the enslavement and subsequent devaluing of blacks, the infecting of blacks with syphilis, the infecting of gays with HIV and more.

    Your ball….


    LMAO im rolling!!!
