Deshayla Harris — one of the stars of ‘Bad Girls Club’ — died after falling victim to one of several shootings that occurred in her home state … TMZ has confirmed.
Virginia Beach PD confirmed Deshayla’s ID Saturday as one of two fatalities resulting from three separate shootings from Friday night … which appear to be unrelated, but happened within a short time of one another. The other victim is 25-year-old Donovan Lynch.
Cops say Deshayla was a bystander for the second shooting, in which a stray bullet from the crossfire hit her. Police do not believe this was a mass shooting — simply shots fired erupting from feuding parties near the beachfront area of town, where all the resorts lie.
Deshayla is said to have died at the scene. Upwards of eight other people were injured from the shootings — and police say they have 3 individuals in custody in connection to at least one of those. Ahmon Adams, Nyquez Baker and Devon Dorsey Jr. were arrested and charged with several different counts — including assault, use and reckless handling of a firearm, among others. VBPD says none of these guys were involved in the shooting that killed Deshayla … it’s unclear if any suspects have been apprehended for that just yet.
Deshayla is known for her appearance on Season 17 of ‘BGC’ … which was dubbed ‘East Meets West.’ They slugged her on the show as the Firecracker Fashionista. Deshayla was portrayed as feisty and a proud East Coaster. She was also a brawler — getting into a memorable fight with another cast member, Francesca, after spitting in her face.
Despite the bad blood on the show, it appears some of her fellow costars sent their condolences on word that she’d been killed, including Key Marie who posted a tribute to Deshayla on Instagram.
She writes, “No matter how much I refused to talk to you…you never took no for an answer you popped up to my show just to prove fixing our friendship meant something to you 🥲 hardest part about losing you is I never fully forgave you 😫😔 I literally let that TV s*** stand between us building a connection outside of tv 😔🥲🥲🥲 you didn’t deserve this man this shit jus don’t feel real ….I’m sick affffff 🥲🥲 rest easy Babygirl “
Deshayla’s final IG post from Friday appears to show her out and about in downtown Norfolk, VA — which is a stone’s throw away from where she was ultimately gunned down.
