The two young men identified as Ryan “Rudy” Johnson and Josh Johnson were riddled with bullets in the early hours of Satuday, July 31. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Wright (né Antonia Wright) took to social media to express her sadness over the loss of her two siblings.
“Help me Lord, I will never understand this,” read the caption of a photo of the two men. The hashtags #stoptheviolence, #neverfeltpainlikethisbefore, and #riptomybrothers along with praying hands and crying face emojis were also included.
According to Wright’s Instagram page, the starlet was in Baton Rouge, La. for a club appearance at Allure Night Club & Ultra Lounge on Saturday.

Wright was once married to rapper Lil’ Wayne, who is the father of Reginae. The pair were childhood sweethearts and are natives of New Orleans.
Celebrity peers also took to social media to offer emotional support to the entrepreneur.
My prayers go out to @ToyaWright & her family during this difficult time.
