The grandparents of rapper Nashon “HoneyKomb Brazy” Jones were found dead following a house fire in their Mobile, Alabama home.
As FOX affiliate WRKG reported, responding firemen were called to the residence of Lelia and Tony Lewis on Wednesday night (Feb. 17) and arrived to see the home burning down in flames that went on to engulf the house next door.
According to the couple’s family, both individuals were fatally shot and intentionally set ablaze. A witness later confirmed the fire was preceded by gunshots. “All I heard was a boom. It sounded like a bunch of shots,” the bystander told WRKG.
“Lord have mercy. Don’t tell me they were up in there because Lord, I heard the children coming across the field crying. I pray for the Jones family. It’s just too crazy.”
