It is with our deepest condolences that we report that rapper Shawty Lo, real name Carlos Walker, was killed last night. Shawty is best known for forming the group D4L and for his international hit song "Dey Know."
According to reports, Shawty was leaving a popular Atlanta nightclub yesterday when his car ran off the road and flipped over. Shawty was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the car. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
There have been reports that Shawty Lo's car was struck by a recklessly driving vehicle. And that the vehicle which caused the accident continued going and did not stop. We're told police are looking into the incident. Right now there is NO REASON to believe that Carlos was intentionally targeted by the vehicle.
