The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office explained Mohamed Konate attempted to commit an armed robbery against Lil Tjay and two of his friends. When they resisted, Konate allegedly shot Tjay multiple times, while one of Tjay’s friends was shot once. Konate has been charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder, while the other two suspects have been hit with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
