The mother of one of rapper Young Thug’s children was shot and killed following a dispute over a bowling ball in Atlanta.

Atlanta police identified the slain woman as LaKevia Jackson, 31. She was killed following a dispute over a bowling ball at the Metro Fun Center in southwest Atlanta.

Investigators tell CBS46that Jackson was attending a birthday celebration at the bowling ally when she got into a fight that escalated into violence.

LaKevia’s mother, Sherina Jackson, told CBS affiliate WRDW that Jackson was shot while leaving the bowling alley.

Witnesses said the gunman waited 20 minutes in the parking lot before ambushing Jackson as she walked out of the bowling alley.

“I didn’t know it was going to be the last time I talked to my baby,” Sherina Jackson said. “I could hear her over the phone crying and screaming then her best friend said she’s not breathing! I lost my baby all over a bowling ball.”

“This is truly an atrocity. A young lady has lost her life over a bowling ball,” APD Homicide Commander Lt. Ralph Woolfolk said during a press conference. “We talk about conflict-resolution time and time again and this is an escalated dispute so we will work this case through the night and we will find the person responsible. We know who are so go ahead and turn ourselves in.”
