Toya Wright's two brothers gunned down in New Orleans

Atlanta reality star and boutique owner Toya Wright's two brothers were gunned down in New Orleans early Sunday morning.

She posted the tragic news early this afternoon on Instagram and within seven hours had garnered more than 22,900 comments from fans (and proving some folks don't understand the "like" function, about 130,000 pushed that, too.). Her brother's names are Rudy and Josh Johnson. They both appeared on the former BET reality show "Tiny & Toya."

According to the News Picayune: 

The two young men were discovered shortly after midnight Sunday inside a car near the corner of Pauger and North Miro streets in the city's 7th Ward. Both had been shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, New Orleans police said. Less than an hour later, a man was shot to death in the Seabrook neighborhood of New Orleans East.

Wright is from New Orleans and was once married to Lil Wayne. She is currently on the WE-TV reality show "Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars" with MempHitz. Unfortunately, it appears the two are separated and on their way to divorce.
