Angela Simmons and her family are in mourning.
Last night, the former reality TV star took to her Instagram to post an emotional tribute to her ex-fiancé, Sutton Tennyson, who was shot and killed in Atlanta on Saturday, November 3.
In the series of photos and a video on Instagram on Sunday, November 4, which showed moments Tennyson shared with their 2-year-old son, Sutton Joseph, Angela wrote: “Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift . I’m hurting . I’m numb. Thank you for the out pouring of love everyone . I cant believe I’m even saying Rest In Peace Sutton . I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise.”
She continued in a heart-wrenching clip of her son giggling as he watched a video of his dad throwing him in the air. “Reflecting . He keeps replaying it RIP Sutton.”
US Weekly adds that the Atlanta Police responded to a call of shots at a home in southwest Atlanta just before 5 p.m. on Saturday and found Tennyson, 37, lying dead with multiple gunshot wounds inside an open garage.
“Preliminary information indicates the victim had been talking in the driveway with another man, when the conversation escalated and the suspect shot the victim multiple times,” Officer Jarius Daugherty said. “The suspect sped from the scene in a car.”
The death is being investigated by the Atlanta Police Department’s homicide unit.
