The widower of slain rapper Magnolia Shorty has been shot dead just weeks before the first anniversary of his wife's murder.
The hip-hop star - real name Renetta Lowe - was gunned down in her native New Orleans, Louisiana on 20 December (10).
Now her husband Carl Bridgewater, 31, has been killed in a shooting in New Orleans' Central City neighbourhood on Thursday afternoon (17Nov11), according to local website nola.com.
Police officer Hilal Williams tells reporters that authorities have not yet established a motive and no suspects have been identified.
Lowe was signed to Lil Wayne's Cash Money label, and the Lollipop hitmaker, along with labelmates B.G., Juvenile, MACk Maine and Baby, all attended her funeral in the city.
Two weeks ahead of Independent Venue Week, Dry Cleaning made 'Britain's Best Small Venue 2015' (NME) the second port of call on their 2020 tour.
