Founding member Betty Butt of the famous Twerk Team has passed away after being shot in the head at an apartment complex outside of Atlanta, GA. Members of the YouTube dance group have confirmed her death.
A woman shot at a Cobb County apartment complex Wednesday afternoon has died, and three men have been arrested in connection to the incident.
Smyrna police spokesman Officer Chris Graeff said Wednesday night that the woman – one of two people shot at the Mission at Galleria Apartments – died as a result of her injuries. She was shot in the head and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Channel 2 Action News reported that a man — the second person shot at the apartment complex — was treated at the scene after being shot in the side.
Three men have been arrested in connection to the shooting and a chase that ensued after the incident.
Graeff said that during the initial investigation into the shooting, authorities were told to look out for three men in a red Toyota Camry.
Shortly thereafter, a Smyrna officer got behind the vehicle on Cobb Parkway, which sparked a chase.
After traveling down Windy Hill Road and onto Interstate 75, Cobb police officers got involved in the pursuit, Graeff said.
The pursued vehicle then got onto Paces Ferry Road near Paces Mill Road in Vinings, where it struck a vehicle and overturned.
Twerk Team member Mizz Twerksum confirmed her passing via Instagram with an in-depth post as tribute.
Hit the flip to see the late dancer’s skills. May she rest in peace.
