It was supposed to be a celebration. Terrytown husband and father Bowie Richard, a rapper/songwriter known by the stage name "Yung Kaptin," was out with friends early Saturday morning (Jan. 18) to toast the night's successful performance.
No one expected the night to end with Richard, 21, shot dead following a heated exchange with a man inside The Edge Sports Bar & Daiquiris, 2151 Lapalco Blvd., Harvey. Stunned relatives said his death wasn't motivated by drugs or troublemaking. It was an unimaginably senseless murder that began as a quarrel with a stranger.
"It has nothing to do with any of that," Richard's mother, Tammy Duhon, 44, said Sunday afternoon. "He was just out celebrating."
Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office detectives have identified the gunman as Devin Bonilla, 24, of Marrero. He is wanted on a warrant for second-degree murder, said Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the department.
