“My son was not a victim of a stray bullet. “He was the victim of decades of neglect that left the youth of New Orleans with no hope for the future and no real fear of consequences,” his mother Sherlyn Price said in a statement.
According to a relative of the comedian, Mondrell moved to Los Angeles to pursue his entertainment career, but decided to return to his hometown in Louisiana to spend the holidays with his mother and grandmother.
For their part, the police have identified two suspects considered dangerous in the murder. Photographs of them and their vehicle were pasted.
‘Boogie B’ is popular with more than 226,000 followers on TikTok and other social media. He rose to fame with his ‘Hood History’ video series, in which he shares historical places, events and people of New Orleans with a humorous twist.
Known for its nightlife, New Orleans has the highest homicide rate in the U.S., with 41 murders per 100,000 residents in the first half of the year, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis.
