Two men who were shot and killed in New Orleans on Sunday morning have been identified as the brothers of reality TV star Toya Wright.
“Help me Lord I will never understand this. #stoptheviolence #ineverfeltpainlikethisbefore #riptomybrothers #icantbelievethis #prayformyfamily,” she wrote on an Instagram post featuring a photo of her two brothers, Ryan “Rudy” Johnson and Josh Johnson.
Police found the men in a car in New Orleans’ 7th Ward with multiple gunshot wounds, according to The Times-Picayune. They were declared dead on the scene.
“I lost two of my uncles last night. I’m speechless. I’m hurt. I’m devastated,” Reginae Carter — Wright’s daughter with rapper Lil Wayne — wrote. “What in the world is going on in this world?”
Wright appeared in the BET reality series Tiny and Toya with fellow former member of the R&B group Xscape, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. She was also the focus of Toya: A Family Affair on BET.
