According to Nola.com, Rudy Johnson and Josh Johnson ” were discovered shortly after midnight Saturday inside a car near the corner of Pauger and North Miro streets in the city’s 7th Ward. Both had been shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, New Orleans police said. Less than an hour later, a man was shot to death in the Seabrook neighborhood of New Orleans East.”

Wright’s daughter Reginae has also taken to social media to express her sadness over the sudden loss of her uncles, posting the same photo as her mom with the caption, “I lost two of my uncles last night 😢 I’m speechless . I’m hurt . I’m devastated . What in the world is going on in this world ?”

Toya was very close to her brothers and fans of Wright’s reality show A Family Affair may remember her them both making appearances in the series. We’re definitely keeping Toya, Reginae, and their family in our prayers as they do their best to get though this trying time.
