The popular stars of the OWN show Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s are in mourning today. Miss Robbie’s 21-year-old grandson, Andre Montgomery, has been shot and killed in St. Louis, reports TMZ.
The aspiring rapper, who appeared on the reality show featuring Robbie Montgomery and her family and their soul food restaurants, was recording at a home in St. Louis when he was gunned down when he went outside to take a phone call.
Although no suspects have yet been arrested, police do have a lead – according to TMZ, someone came into Andre’s hotel room with a key – although its unclear if any valuables were taken. The individual was captured on surveillance tape.
Another man was shot as he attempted to come to Montgomery’s aid by drawing his own gun, Fox 2 Now in St. Louis reports. That man was shot by another man who mistook him as a threat, not realizing he was assisting Montgomery.
Andre’s high school graduation in 2013 was featured on the show.
