An Atlanta rapper is grieving the death of his girlfriend after she was kidnapped by gunpoint in front of his home.
According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Germ, born as Jerry Antoine, was waiting for his bartender girlfriend, Mariam Abdulrab, to come to his southeast Atlanta home after finishing her shift at Revery bar on August 13.
When Abdulrab arrived, the rapper saw a man abduct the young woman as he, helplessly, watched the gun-toting man force his beau into a car. Antoine called 911.
“Somebody just left with my girlfriend. Oh my God. Bro, I just watched her get kidnapped from in front of my house. What the fuck. Oh my fucking God,” he told the dispatcher.
The operator asked Antoine how Abdulrab was abducted.
“Yes. I watched it all through my window in my front yard. He had a gun pointed to her, and he forced her into a car. He had on a security shirt,” he responded.

Unfortunately, the publication reported that police received a more somber second phone call several hours later from a passerby on Lakewood Avenue.
“She does not appear to be breathing,” the man told the 911 operator. “This is somebody’s baby.”
Abdulrab’s body was discovered near an abandoned house. The young bartender had been fatally shot.
On August 17, a suspect was arrested in connection to Abdulrab’s death. DeMarcus Brinkley was taken to the Fulton County Jail – where he faces a litany of charges, including murder, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
According to the AJC, the 27-year-old man served time in prison. The convicted child molester raped a seven-year-old girl in 2012. Brinkley served seven years in prison.
As Antoine openly grieved his beloved girlfriend, the budding rapper shared photos of him and Abdulrab on Instagram this past Friday.
“DAMN TODAY IS A DIFF FEELING I WATCHED MY REAL LIFE BEST FRIEND RIPPED AWAY FROM ME THEN DIS WEIRDO HAD TO TAKE HER LIFE SHIT IS SICK,” he wrote. “I DNT KNW WAT TO DO SHIT IS STANDSTILL, BUT IMA MAKE SURE THEY REMEMBER HOW SELFLESS ND HAPPY YOU WERE YOU DIDN’T DESERVE THIS ❤️ MARIAM FOREVER ?
