Angela Simmons is mourning the loss of her ex-fiancé and father of her only son, Sutton Tennyson, who was shot and killed on Saturday.
The Atlanta Police Department tells PEOPLE that officers responded to a call of shots fired shortly before 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Although the police declined to formally identify Tennyson, they shared that “upon arrival, officers discovered a 37-year-old black male lying deceased, with multiple gunshot wounds, inside an open garage.”
According to their preliminary investigation, shots were fired after a conversation with another male escalated. After firing multiple shots, the suspect then “sped from the scene in a car.”
The case is currently under investigation by the APD’s homicide unit.
On Sunday morning, the Growing Up Hip Hop star — who is the daughter of Run D.M.C.’s Rev. Run — posted a series of touching tributes to Tennyson, writing that she was “hurting” and “numb.”
