An original member of Atlanta’s Twerk Team, known as Betty Butt, was shot and killed in a double shooting that happened at a Cobb County Apartment Complex Wednesday afternoon.
The shooting happened at the Mission at Galleria Apartments. Betty was shot in the head and taken to a local hospital, where she later died. A man was also shot but was treated on the scene for a gunshot wound to his side.
Three men have been arrested in connection to the shooting after leading Cobb police officers on a chase. The vehicle the men were traveling in struck another vehicle and overturned. The men tried to flee from the vehicle but were later caught by police.
As of Wednesday afternoon, police had not identified the victim or the three men arrested after the crash. However, Twerk Team member Lady Luscious revealed on Instagram that the deceased female was in fact Betty.
Details surrounding the shooting are still being pieced together but it is believed to have been the result of a robbery gone wrong.
