Rapper Juice Wrld, 21, was reported dead yesterday morning after suffering a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport.
Juice’s flight from California landed early Sunday morning and, after deplaning … witnesses tell us he suffered the seizure while walking through the airport. Law enforcement sources say he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics got on scene.
Now law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the pilot who was flying Juice’s private plane alerted authorities on the ground that the rapper’s entourage had guns on them, as well as 70 pounds of marijuana.
When they landed, FBI and FAA agents were waiting for Juice and company.
Several members of Juice’s team aboard the flight — which landed around 1 AM Sunday — told officers that Juice had taken “several unknown pills” prior to the seizures which led to him getting rushed to a hospital.
Further, we’re told one of Juice’s associates told authorities the 21-year-old rapper has a Percocet problem. Our law enforcement sources also say a bottle of codeine cough syrup was found on the plane.
An autopsy was performed on the rapper this afternoon, but additional testing, including toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology is still needed before determining an official cause.
