Jay Gunz, a Ghanaian rapper who is based in the United States of America, has died as a result of a shoot out in his home in the Bronx, New York, on Sunday, 5 July.
According to the New York Police Department in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the department's official Twitter handle, officers from the 44 Precinct were called out on the day.
It was indicated that the officers responded to the call quickly as the caller mentioned that a male got shot at 306 East 171 Street.
Upon arrival, they discovered three males with gunshot wounds. Two of the victims later died from their injuries while one remains hospitalised.
According to reports by AmeyawDebrah, the two who died were Jay Gunz and Eno (Edubb). They were pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital.
Jay Gunz is originally from Sekondi and his mother is said to own a popular store in the Bronx, New York. Eno has Nigerian roots and both of them were rappers.

In another report, Nancy Adams, an iconic Black slave who was born in 1766 and died in June 1859, left a remarkable but hardly known footprint of escaping slavery three times in her lifetime.
According to a report by Face2FaceAfrica sighted by YEN.com.gh, Nancy escaped slavery once in Maryland and twice in Connecticut even though she walked with a limp.
After all her expeditions, Nancy later settled down in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, where she lived as a free woman for many years before her death on 6 June 1859.
