West Coast rapper Big Paybacc was murdered in broad daylight on Thursday, November 6.
CBS Los Angeles reports that Paybacc, real name Habeeb Ameer Zekajj, was eating at a Palmdale, California McDonald's when a lone gunman walked up and shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say Paybacc was intentionally targeted. None of the other 15 restaurant customers were injured. After the shooting the gunman fled on foot.
“There was no altercation that they [witnesses] saw. This guy just walked in through one door, shot him and left out another door. So it looked like something personal. He had something against this individual. It wasn’t like he shot up the McDonald’s. He just shot him and left,” said LA County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina.
Paybacc's girlfriend Jessica Jefferson was understandably distraught upon learning of her boyfriend's death.
“I just knew it,” she said, “I drove by and saw his truck.”For them to be that bold to run up to someone in a McDonald’s in daylight, in front of people, kids you know, and to just take some kind of vengeance on somebody, it’s, it’s inhumane. Everybody loves him, and he’s a good rapper, and he has so many followers, and people who stand behind him. He really is a good, solid person."
Paybacc leaves behind three children.
