Niyo Davinci, a member of the flight school's production team, was reportedly shot and killed by his girlfriend on Monday (April 13) during a home dispute.
According to The Times-Picayune / New Orleans lawyer, Jefferson Times, Louisiana sheriff officials arrested 41-year-old Chanel Galle and accused her of negligent murder. According to the Legal Dictionary, negligent murder is defined as "killing another person through reckless or negligent behavior".
While the authorities haven't publicly identified him as a victim until Tuesday evening, Niyo's mother Latifah Shakir also confirmed her son's death on Facebook.
Davinci, real name Naim Shakir, is said to have suffered a bullet wound to the neck and was declared dead by the authorities at the scene.
Throughout his career, he has worked with some of the top names in Louisiana hip hop history, including Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Mystikal, B.G., Kevin Gates, and Young Greatness, who themselves died in 2018.
Niyo Davinci took part in an Instagram live beat fight with other New Orleans-based producers a few days before his death. The fight series has since been renamed in his honor.
