Juvenile’s Young Daughter, Along with Her Mother and Sister, Shot and Killed

Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr., a 17-year-old high school sophomore, has been arrested and charged with allegedly killing his mother, Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Deputy Joy Deleston (age 39), and his two younger sisters, Micaiah (age 11) and Jelani (age 4). Young Jelani just so happens to be the daughter of former Cash Money recording artist Juvenile. The Central Gwinnett High School student has been booked on three counts of murder and three counts of aggravated assault and is being held in the DeKalb County Jail.

“It is heartbreaking to lose someone in the way that we lost her,” Gwinett County Sheriff Butch Conway told WSB-TV Channel 2. “I am very angry that these three lives were so violently taken from us in a totally senseless and cowardly act.”

According to a statement released by Juvenile’s spokeswoman, the rapper was “extremely saddened to hear the reports.” At press time, he had no further comment. My condolences go out to the families of these victims, including Juvenile, and we here at Think2wice ask that you all keep them in your prayers.
