Young Thug’s Nephew Arrested for Murdering Girlfriend in Atlanta

A young roguenephew is in police custody after allegedly shooting his girlfriend in the face and killing her… TMZ Hip Hop has learned.

Deonta Grier of Fardere was arrested Wednesday after officers were called to a residence outside Atlanta. East Point PD spokesperson Allyn Glover tells TMZ … when officers responded, Grier was crying and his girlfriend, Destiny Fitzpatrickhad died in a pool of blood by the front door.

Glover says Grier told cops he’s Young Thug’s nephew, the son of YT’s oldest sister … but it’s unclear why he chose to share that information. A source close to Young Thug confirms the relationship.

As for what happened… Grier initially told responders that he fought off 2 armed, masked intruders, but cops say he eventually admitted to shooting Destiny in the face. The neighbor allegedly heard an argument in the apartment before the shooting.

Grier was arrested and charged with murder.

As you know, Young Thug is currently in custody as well … to multiple RICO charges after being denied bond multiple times. His fellow YSL artists, Gunna — also charged in the RICO case — was in court Thursday trying to be freed, but a judge shot it down.

We’ve reached out to Young Thug’s legal team for comment on Grier’s situation … so far, no response.
