Trigz, a celebrated tattoo and graffiti artist who worked on the likes of Chris Brown, was murdered yesterday evening (October 9) in what appears to be a verbal argument turned deadly.
A male suspect shot Trigz in the torso at about 5:50 p.m. at the intersection of Laurel Canyon and Victory boulevards. He took off, leaving Trigz to die just feet from a tattoo parlor.
Valley Village resident Angel Flores said he heard about four gunshots.
“I came to bank at the Wells Fargo and I heard the gunshots,” Flores said.
Trigz was a famed tattoo and graffiti artist, actor and model. He also became part of an exclusive worldwide group of artists called The Seventh Letter, fellow member and friend Willie T told Eyewitness News.
Willie T called Trigz a “nice guy” and a father who loved his family.
“To see this and to hear this, it’s not cool. Right now, my job is to be the photographer of the crew, so I’m here to document what happened. But at the day when I go home, it’s a different story,” Willie T said.
