Local Rapper 'Lor Scoota' Shot And Killed In N.E. Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- A local rapper has been shot and killed in Northeast Baltimore.

Police confirm that 23-year-old Tyriece Watson, also known as Lor Scoota, has died from his injuries.

Detectives say Watson was driving eastbound on Moravia Road at Harford Road around 7 p.m. Saturday.

A suspect stepped into the street and opened fire, according to witnesses. He was wearing a white bandana.

Watson was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Watson had apparently attended a charity basketball game "Touch the People Pray for Peace in These Streets" at Morgan State University" before he was killed, according to councilman Nick Mosby.

"I am saddened to hear about the senseless murder of Tyrice "Lor Scoota" Watson. He had a heart for youth and took the time out of his schedule to join me on my #EyeAmBaltimore Tour to high schools in West Baltimore following last year's uprising where he spoke about the importance of staying in school."
