Rapper Young Mazi who has been shot several times in the past has now been killed.  Last night he was shot walking out of Urban Pie, pizza restaurant near the intersection of Oakview & Hosea Williams Drive in S.E. Atlanta.  Investigators have a very vague description of the suspect who is being described as a black male with pulled back dreadlocks.  Detectives say there was no altercation before the shooting so it seems as if Young Mazi was targeted in the shooting which happen across the street from Atlanta Police Department Zone 6.  Right now there are no suspects in custody.
