HipHollywood can confirm that Evans was shot to death around 11:58 p.m. on Monday while in Newark, NJ and was pronounced dead at 12:42 p.m.

Marry, Shag, Kill: Although just a game, Angela was asked to choose who she’d marry, shag or kill between Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown and Daniel Kaluuya.
