We often hear about incidents of violence breaking out in and around video shoots, but nothing like this.

Per Hiphopearly:

Unfortunate news out of my native area: a rapper from Southeast DC was killed during a rap video gone wrong, leading to one of his co-stars being arrested for the murder. At the time of his death, Keaway Lafonz Ivy was filming a music video in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, home of Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant.

Ivy, a 21 year old up and coming rapper, was pronounced dead in a parking lot in the 400 block of Eastern Avenue near the MD/DC border at about 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

DC police have charged Lafonzo Leonard Iracks, 21, in connection with Ivy’s death. The two rappers were shooting the music video when Iracks discharged his prop weapon, resulting in a life-ending situation for Ivy.

The investigators are currently unclear on whether or the shooting was intentional.
