DaBaby’s older brother reportedly died Tuesday by suicide.
Glen Johnson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to TMZ. Channel 9 reports Glenn was shot and killed in a parking lot on Berkeley Place Drive off Mallard Creek Church Road but the Police has not officially called it suicide yet.
He had posted a video of himself with a gun in a vehicle while clearly upset about something and crying, saying he was “wronged” in the past. Johnson is survived by three daughters and a son.
