Magnolia Shorty’s Husband Murdered in New Orleans

Almost a year has passed since Magnolia Shorty was gunned down in New Orleans on Dec. 20, 2010, and now friends and family members of the slain rapper are feeling the loss of her husband, Carl Bridgewater, who was shot Thursday (Nov. 17).

Bridgewater, 31, became the 181st homicide of the year for the city of New Orleans.

“Senseless,” his uncle, Terry Bridgewater stated about the murder.

The victim was recently released from jail, after being arrested in March 2010, for cocaine possession with intent to distribute. In November 2001, Bridgewater was taken into custody for distributing heroin and possessing a firearm — he was a felon. The District Attorney’s office shot down the charges stemming from 2001, according to records.

In Magnolia Shorty’s death, the 28-year-old rapper and another man were shot dead while riding in a vehicle in New Orleans. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
