Gender bending YouTube Video sensation “Messy Mya,” a 22-year old who’s real name was “Louis,” according to a reference on his Facebook page, was shot and killed in New Orleans on Sunday.
The incident reportedly happened after Messy Mya was attending the baby shower of his girlfriend. According to //NOLA.com/”>NOLA.com, New Orleans Police reported that “a man” was killed at St. Anthony and North Rocheblave streets in what is called the 7th Ward.
Police have not released the official identity of the man, but observers and others identified him as the YouTube performer Messy Mya.
According to his YouTube channel page, Messy Mya joined YouTube in 2008 and
produced 76 videos. He gained 3,676 subscribers. What’s confusing is the last visit of Messy Mya is listed as being 7 hours ago. That would put the time at around 2 in the morning on Monday, November 15th. If Messy Mya was shot on Sunday, and is dead, then perhaps he shared his account with someone else.
There was twitpic posted of the the man shot and killed after bystanders actually used their camera phones to record the man identified by onlookers as Messy Mya lying in a pool of his own blood. We will not run the pic but the link is //twitpic.com/370e5y/full”>here

Was Messy Mya’s death connected to his YouTube work? It’s not clear at this stage why he was murdered. Police have not reported a motive or named a suspect. Is this a “gay” bashing of some kind? Time will tell.
