Rihanna has posted an emotional message to Instagram mourning her 21-year-old cousin Tavon Alleyne after he was killed last night.
“RIP cousin... can't believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!” Rihanna wrote.
“Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man! 😢🙏🏿❤ #endgunviolence.”
According to Barbados Today at “around 7 p.m. Alleyne was walking through a track in the area of his house when he was approached by a man who shot him multiple times before fleeing the scene.”
Tavon was rushed to hospital where he later passed away.
We extend our deepest condolences to Rihanna, as well as Tavon’s family and friends.
