On November 22, 2020, 21 Savage tragically lost his brother, Terrell Davis-Emmons. This was after Davis-Emmons was stabbed to death, by 22-year-old Tyrece Fuller. A Daily Mail report stated that Davis-Emmons was with his grandmother, in Brixton, South London.
Fuller soon approached him with a knife, and confronted him about an alleged £800 gambling debt, that needed to be paid. Both Fuller and Davis-Emmons were ready to use their knives, but Davis-Emmons was unfortunately the one, who suffered the injuries. The incident was said to have taken place before 6PM, and the knife was six inches long.
The Daily Mail has also reported that Fuller has now received a 10-year sentence, for this crime. He was found guilty on manslaughter charges. During the time of the incident, Davis-Emmons but his own knife away, and that’s when Fuller attacked. Someone nearby tried to break up the fight, but it was too late. He died at the scene. Fuller was initially cleared of murder charges.
“This is yet another tragic example of the curse of knife crime in London,” said Justice John Cavanagh. “A young man’s life has needlessly been cut short by the willingness of young men to pick up a knife or blade and to use it when there are far easier and far safer and better ways of resolving the situation. He looked after people in his community and had positive plans for the future. The victim personal statement graphically described how Terell Davis-Emmons’s death has devastated his family and those who knew and loved him.”
