Rapper Lil TJay shot multiple times in New Jersey

Lil TJay was one of two people shot in New Jersey early Wednesday morning, just weeks after declaring it was going to be “a good summer.”

The Bronx-born rapper was struck multiple times at The Promenade in Edgewater.

When they arrived, they discovered 21-year-old Lil TJay, whose real name is Tione Marriot, with multiple gunshot wounds.

Antoine Boyd, 22, was also found with a single gunshot wound, officials said.

Both were transported to an area hospital for treatment. Officials did not release their conditions

Officials said the shooting happened after Mohamed Konate tried to rob Lil TJay, Boyd and a third person the rapper was with, 24-year-old Jeffrey Valdez.

Both Valdez and Boyd each had an unlawful weapon on them at the time.

Konate was arrested later on Wednesday by detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the New York Police Department.

He’s charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of armed robbery, two counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and fourth-degree aggravated assault.
