Police say it was a child who called Nine One One during the alleged murder suicide that left rapper J $tash and his girlfriend dead on New Year’s Day, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the 911 call came name from one of Jeanette Gaiagos three children who were home at the time of the shooting, Lieutenant Derek Alfred said J $tash, whose real name is Justin Joseph and Gaia Gas, had been living together in Temple City, California, for the past few months.
The couple was arguing about their relationship in the early hours of January 1, when Jay Dollar Tash reportedly took Gaiegos into a master bedroom and locked the door, Mr. Alfred said. The Lieutenant told the sun that Jeanette Gallegos children, three boys, ages seven, nine, and eleven years old, knocked on the door periodically to make sure their mom was okay.
Around 07:00, a.m. Mr. Alfred said the kids heard gunshots and called their grandmother, who told them to call police. It’s a very tragic situation.
Mr. Alfred told The Associated Press. He said he didn’t know if the call came into 911 before or after Jeanette Gallegos was shot. The boys ran out of the house and toward deputies. When the Sheriff’s Department got there. When deputies went inside the home.
Mr. Alfred said, they forced their way into the locked master bedroom and found Gajos and J $tash dead.
The female victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds while the male victim sustained an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Sheriff’s Department said in an initial statement. J $tash, 28, and Gaia Gas, 27, were publicly identified as the deceased on Monday.
The boys, who are not related to J $tash were unhurt and are now in the care of their father, according to Mr. Alfred. Investigators were awaiting autopsy and forensic results, including information from ballistics tests to confirm what took place inside the house.
Aside from the alleged argument, Mr. Alfred didn’t have further details to share about what led to the gunfire, he said.
Deputies had been called to the Temple City home once in the past for a report of domestic violence, but no arrests were made. While few details about Gallego’s life have been released, J $tash was known as an up and coming on rapper in the entertainment industry.
He rose to Fame following his 2016 album and has since released an additional three albums, including no More Distractions, Relax With Me and Six Before Seven. J $tash also dabbled in modeling and design and had a following of over 1640 users on Instagram.
