Angela Simmons Mourns Ex-Fiancé, Sutton Tennyson Who Was Fatally Shot Dead In Atlanta
The Atlanta Police Department says officers responded to a call of shots fired shortly before 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Although the police declined to formally identify Tennyson, they shared that “upon arrival, officers discovered a 37-year-old black male lying deceased, with multiple gunshot wounds, inside an open garage.”
According to their preliminary investigation, shots were fired after a conversation with another male escalated. After firing multiple shots, the suspect then “sped from the scene in a car.”
The case is currently under investigation by the APD’s homicide unit.
On Sunday morning, the Growing Up Hip Hop star who is the daughter of Run D.M.C.’s Rev. Run posted a series of touching tributes to Tennyson, writing that she was “hurting” and “numb.”
“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” wrote Simmons, 31, on Instagram alongside a series of family snaps.
“I’m hurting. I’m numb. Thank you for the out pouring [sic] of love everyone,” she continued, adding that she couldn’t “believe I’m even saying Rest in Peace Sutton.”
Concluding the message, she made a pledge to always watch over their son, Sutton Joseph, 2.
“I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise,” she wrote, adding a heart emoji.
