How sad. The Jacka, a well-known rap artist in the Bay Area of San Francisco, was killed in an apparent shooting. He was just 37.
The Jacka, born Dominic West, has been killed. A report claims that The Jacka was shot during a shooting in East Oakland, Calif. There is no word on whether or not The Jacka was an intentional target.
The Jacka Killed In Overnight Shooting
Late Monday night, Feb. 2, The Jacka was shot and killed in East Oakland, California, reports CBS in San Francisco.
Witnesses claim to have heard multiple gunshots around 8:15pm PT in the area of MacArthur Boulevard and 94th Avenue.
Unfortunately, no suspects have been identified in the shooting or, more importantly, The Jacka’s death.
The Jacka was a well-known rapper in the East Bay area where he was often referred to as a “local legend” with an iconic sound. He was also a part of the Mob Figaz group, and although he reportedly went solo recently he still promotes the group on his social media accounts.
The Jacka Tweeting From Beyond The Grave
In an eerie turn of events, The Jacka’s Twitter account has tweeted several times since he was found dead from a gunshot wound.
His over 60k followers and fans were shocked to see that tweets were still going out to promote a music video and other social media accounts even though they were likely scheduled by someone else at a much earlier time.
“@theJacka he dead show sone respect,” wrote on Twitter user.
“wish it was really you tweeting,” wrote another who also included a sad face.
Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of Dominic West, aka The Jacka, during this difficult time.
