Philadelphia police believe the son of famous local rapper turned podcaster Gillie Da King was the victim killed in a triple shooting in the city’s Olney section Thursday night. This shooting happened just before 8:30 p.m. near the intersection of Mascher Street and Nedro Avenue. When police got there, they found two shooting victims about a block away, including a 25-year-old man who had been shot in the back. They took those two to Einstein Medical Center where the man who had been shot in the back was pronounced dead. Multiple people on the scene told police that the 25-year-old victim was YNG Cheese, Gillie’s son. Police are still trying to confirm that, as social media lit up with tributes to the artist Thursday night.
