Original article, Sunday night:
Two locally prominent Detroit rappers were killed in a hail of bullets on I-94 near LIvernois in Detroit around 3 a.m. Sunday, Shawn Ley of WDIV reports.
Ramell Campbell and Domonique Brown, traveling eastbound on the freeway in a white Chrysler 200, were killed after someone fired about 30 shots. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
The two had been in the WGPR (Hot 107.5) radio studio with station personality Kenny Valentino on Friday. Friends think Campbell and Brown had left a club in Dearborn when they were targeted, Valentino says.
Police haven't determined a motive.
A GoFundMe account is set up in honor of Brown, a mother of two. The campaign says:
She was a great mother an would go above and beyond to take care of her children so we would like to keep it going. . . . Raising money to help with the needs near and far of the 2 kids left behind after their mom's tragic and senseless death. Anything would help.
