The siblings of reality television star Toya Wright that were gunned down in the 7th Ward soon after midnight Sunday morning, may have gotten into an argument that resulted in their murders, according to neighbor John Kemper. Wright's ex-husband, Lil Wayne, jumped on a private jet to comfort her during this tragic time, according to Hot New Hip Hop.

John Kemper said the noise from a disturbance outside his home was loud enough to make the 55-year-old peer through his window to see what was going on. According to the New Orleans Advocate, Kemper said he noticed that a few residents from an apartment building on the upriver side of the street were shouting at the passengers of a black SUV parked across the street from his residence in the 2800 block of Pauger Street.

"They were shouting down, taking a look at the car. There was a disturbance heading on."

"Help me Lord," Wright wrote. "I will never understand this."

No one has been named in the double-homicide and police are not saying what they think the motive was for the killing of the Johnson brothers. However, John Kemper and several neighbors said they suspect a connection to the drug dealing that is commonplace near the apartment buildings.

"It be like they're selling sno-balls over there."

There has been an outpouring of support on social media for Toya Wright, who has already experienced a great deal of personal tragedy in her short life, in addition to a great deal of success. In addition to Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, she starred on BET's Toya: A Family Affair, and Tiny and Toya with T.I.'s wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris. She has authored two books, Priceless Inspiration, and How To Lose A Husband, and she owns two boutiques, G.A.R.B., in New Orleans, and GARB, in Smyrna, Georgia. She has a 17-year-old daughter, Reginae, with her ex-husband Lil Wayne.
