Aspiring Atlanta-area rapper, Yung Teddy, was gunned Wednesday evening (January 2) just hours after tweeting about threats on his life.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the 23-year-old rapper (real name: Justin Mitchell) was found dead in Austell, Georgia at around 10:18 pm. Police are currently trying to find two suspects: two men, believed to be in their early 20s.

What's odd about the slaying is that Teddy tweeted a cryptic messaged earlier in the day (@YungTeddy), saying that "N****s wanna see me dead."

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call police at 770-499-3945.
