A member of the BallerStatus team suffered a huge loss over the weekend, when his younger brother lost his life in a stabbing … and it was a case of mistaken identity.
Souleo, who’s “With Souleo…” video segment is regularly published on the site, lost his 21-year-old brother Glenn Wright, after he was stabbed in the neck outside his grandmother’s East Harlem Baruch Houses building by four men who attacked him as a result of mistaken identity.
Wright was taken to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition Saturday (September 12), and died later Sunday.
He is survived by seven siblings, his father, and a girlfriend. He had a love of skateboarding and photography, and a bright future ahead of him.
Police currently have one suspect in custody, and the family hopes justice will be served.
Our condolences go out to Souleo and his family, from the BallerStatus team.
