The brother of well-known Baltimore rapper Kevron Evans, better known as Young Moose, was the victim of a shooting in the city’s Belair-Edison neighborhood on May 17, according to police.

At about 9:52 p.m., officers from the Northeast District responded to a reported shooting on the 4200 block of Sheldon Avenue. When they arrived on the scene, they discovered 26-year-old Kevin Evans, who was unresponsive after sustaining bullet wounds. He was taken by medics to Johns Hopkins Hospital and pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Young Moose first received his fame in 2013 when he began posting music videos on YouTube, featuring songs such as “This Mine,” “Wats the Reason” and the viral hit “Dumb Dumb.”

The online rap sensation was even recently featured in the AFRO as an artist who was finding success by collaborating with his peers.

Young Moose’s trend towards national stardom has been stymied, however, by his run-ins with the law. Song lyrics that seemingly glorified the use of guns and the selling of crack and heroin; in addition to videos showing the rapper and his crew with the illegal items, appears to have painted a target on Evans’ back. Earlier this year, the rapper and several members of his family—including his now-deceased brother—were arrested and charged with numerous firearm and drug charges.
