DETROIT (AP) — The manager of Detroit-based rapper Tee Grizzley has died after shots were fired at their vehicle.

The medical examiner’s office says 41-year-old Jobina Brown died Tuesday from multiple gunshot wounds. She was the aunt of Tee Grizzley, whose actual name is Terry Wallace Jr.

Police say Brown, the rapper and another man were in a car when shots were fired in Detroit. Grizzley wasn’t hurt.

Barney McDowell tells TV station WJBK that the shooting occurred near his house. He says he heard shots, opened the front door and quickly closed it.


Another music manager, Mikey Epstein, says he knew Brown. He says he had a “horrible gut feeling” when he heard the news.
