Lil Tjay’s Accused Shooter Release Request Denied
Mohamad Konate, the man accused of shooting rapper Lil Tjay, has requested to be released from jail for medical treatment.
According to reports on Monday (July 25), Judge James Sattley denied the request for release and prepared for the upcoming detention hearing.

Due to the charges against Konate, he will be escorted by at least two officers to receive medical attention outside of the facility.
