Rapper Lil TJay was shot several times in New Jersey

Lil TJay was one of two people shot early Wednesday morning in New Jersey,

 just weeks after he said it would be a "good summer."

The Bronx-born rapper was beaten several times at The Promenade in Edgewater. 

The Bergen County Prosecutor said police responded to reports of shots from the area just after midnight.

Upon her arrival, she discovered 21-year-old Lil TJay, real name Tione Marriot, with numerous gunshot wounds.

Antoine Boyd, 22, was also found with a gunshot wound, officials said.

Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Officials did not disclose her terms,

but TMZ said Lil TJay had undergone an emergency operation.
