Zaywoah was declared dead by first responders on 22nd September 2020 following a fatal shooting in Harrison Township
On the morning of 22nd September 2020, it was reported that Zaywoah had been involved in a fatal shooting that took place at Fountainhead Apartments. At around 1 a.m., a woman claiming to be Zaywoah’s girlfriend called to report that he’d been shot.
After failing to revive him, first responders declared Zaywoah dead at the scene. Zaywoah’s fans sent their condolences via social media, while others expressed anger at the loss of another promising talent due to gun violence.
Others, however, saw an opportunity to profit. One Twitter user claimed that Zaywoah’s loved ones had created a crowdfunding account to cover Zaywoah’s funeral costs. The user intended to con people off of their money, but Zaywoah’s friends swiftly dispelled the scammer’s claim.

In a subsequent video, Gutta alleged that Zaywoah was set up by his pregnant baby mama Kamaree. A person in the clip claimed to have seen Kamaree and Zaywoah’s killer walking together. “God please take this weight off my chest… lease bring justice for Zay,” the caption read.
Gutta’s claim is yet to be verified, but a large section of Twitter users believed him. Local news sources report that Kamaree was with Zaywoah at the time of the shooting, and she’s responsible for placing the call that alerted first responders to the scene.
