The man who was fatally shot at a Woodlawn shopping center in the early hours of Saturday has been identified by Baltimore County Police.
On Sunday, authorities announced the death of 28-year-old Judah James due to the injuries sustained.
Known in Baltimore’s hip-hop scene as Bandhunta Jugg, James was the elder brother of Israel James, also known as Bandhunta Izzy.
The siblings rose to prominence after the release of “Bandhuntas” in 2016, as reported by the Baltimore Banner.
In the same incident, three men aged 25, 26, and 29, along with a 26-year-old woman, sustained injuries, according to authorities.
