The fact that one individual causes another to lose his or her life is not always considered a criminal act. Sometimes, the death is the result of an accident. Other times, it is the result of a negligent or reckless act that ended in the wrongful death of a California resident.
In 2014, Eric Johnson, a concert promoter, was shot while backstage during a Young Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa concert. A witness to this event claims that the individual who shot Johnson had a similar appearance to Jeezy; this same witness later identified Jeezy from a photo lineup. A second witness to the event also described the shooter to a police sketch artist. Apparently, the artist's rendering appeared to look similar to Jeezy. In spite of these two witnesses, Jeezy was not charged in this incident.
