Miss Robbie, the star of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” on OWN, is mourning the loss of her grandson … who was shot and killed in St. Louis, and she believes he was set up.
21-year-old Andre Montgomery was found in a house, unconscious with a gunshot wound Monday night.
Police say he was pronounced dead on the scene … and at this point there’s no suspect.
Miss Robbie tells TMZ … the house where Andre was shot had a recording studio, and he was laying down a rap.
She’s been told that during the recording session, Andre got a phone call to meet someone outside, and when he went out … that’s when he got shot.
Miss Robbie says there is one strong lead in the case Andre was staying in a hotel, and on Tuesday morning someone used a key to enter the room.
She says Andre’s belongings were missing from the room … but the person who went in was captured on surveillance cameras.
Andre was frequently featured with his family members on ‘Sweetie Pie’ including his high school graduation in 2013, when Miss Robbie was beaming with pride.
A rep for OWN tells us,
“Our hearts are with Miss Robbie, Andre’s Uncle Tim Norman and therest of the Sweetie Pie’s family.”
There are no suspects in the case right now.
The station adds that another man, so far unnamed, was also shot and is in critical condition at a city hospital.
The second person, a friend of the reality star, was not shot by Andre’s killers but rather by someone who just arrived on the scene and was trying to help.
His grandmother’s eldest son was Andre’s father, Andre Senior, he was killed when his son was a baby in 1997, according to a bio for Robbie Montgomery.
That biography reads,
“For her that was the worst thing that could ever have happened.
Although that hurt her very badly, she knew in her heart that she had to move on.
She decided she would open a restaurant.”
One episode, showed Robbie and Andre visiting Andre Senior’s grave.
In that clip, which you can watch above, she describes her son as “rebellious” while saying that he didn’t like the lifestyle that she had created for him.
