We are very sad to report that rising rapper, Doe B, known for his role in T.I.’s Hustle Gang, and his recent “Baby Jesus” mixtape was killed in an Alabama club shooting earlier this past Saturday (December 28th). Not many details are known, but it has been reported that the act of violence took place at the Centennial Hill Bar and Grill (once known as Rose Supper Club) in Doe B’s hometown of Montgomery, Alabama.
The rapper, real name Glenn Thomas, was 22 years old. He was not the only one hit in the shooting. According to the Montgomery Police Department, an unidentified 21-year-old woman was also killed in the shooting — she was a Montgomery native named Kimberle Johnson. Six others suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to local hospitals for treatment. The incident apparently occurred around 1:30 AM Saturday morning.
Thomas’ management confirmed his death through the rapper’s Twitter account. This was not the first time Doe was the victim of a shooting, famously wearing an eye patch since suffering a gunshot wound to the face 3 years ago.
Many rappers have taken the time to send their condolences, including Drake, Juicy J, and Hustle Gang leader T.I.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange has closed the Centennial Hill Bar and Grill for the time being, officially stating that the venue “poses an imminent threat to the public’s safety”, also citing a history of violence at the establishment.
Word is Doe B may have been set up, so we hope his killer is found swiftly.
On behalf of the entire WatchThis team, we’d like to offer our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Doe B in wake of this tragedy. R.I.P.
