Rihanna’s cousin has been reportedly shot dead – just hours after the pair spent Christmas Day together.
Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne was walking through the Eden Lodge area of St Michael’s on the holiday island when a gunman shot him several times at about 7pm on Tuesday.
Pictures show a strip of yellow police tape around the back of a property and next to a parked car in the neighbourhood. Residents in the area say it marks the spot where the 21-year-old was murdered.
Rihanna, 29, posted a series of photos of her and Alleyne together and called for an end to gun crime as she mourned his death.
‘RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!’ the heartbroken Wild Thoughts singer wrote to her 59million Instagram followers.
‘Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man!’
The eight-time Grammy award winner added the hashtag, ‘#endgunviolence,’ at the end of the post.
The 21-year-old was rushed to a nearby hospital in a private vehicle but eventually succumbed to his injuries.
Rhianna later added a memorial panel to her Instagram Stories, with a black background adding his handle – @merka_95.
