With West Baltimore still in the midst of mourning slain rapper Lor Scoota, another murder shocked the community on Wednesday night.
Just outside the Maryland Zoo, 24-year-old Trayvon Lee was shot to his upper body and later died after being taken to the hospital. Known as Truz, Lee was Lor Scoota’s manager and CEO of the record label, YBS. He is also the brother of a popular dirt-biker, Chino Braxton, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Chino posted a long remembrance of Truz on Instagram. He said he was shot in the head twice earlier this year, along with losing Scoota.
“…Then a week later we lost you a great dad who put his son first…” he wrote.

Police said they did not have suspects in Lee’s killing, and did not immediately know if the two incidents were connected, but said they are looking into it.
Scoota was killed in East Baltimore June 25 after leaving a charity basketball game that featured pleas for peace. Investigators believe Lor Scoota’s murder was a “retaliatory incident related to a violent crime that occurred earlier.”
“It appears that he might have been associated with the person who committed the violent act,” said police spokesman TJ Smith.
