Rihanna and Cardi B are among many who have paid tribute to a 15-year-old teen who was murdered in the Bronx, New York, last week.
Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz was fatally attacked with a machete by gang members in an apparent case of mistaken identity.
Several people have offered their condolences online using the hashtag #JusticeForJunior, including Rihanna.
Cardi B, who’s from the Bronx, donated $8000 (£6,000) to the victim’s family.
“These Bronx streets are ruthless,” the rapper wrote on Instagram after uploading a picture of Lesandro and his mother, Leandra Feliz, in hospital.
“People be like ‘call the police! call the police’ – but for what? The operators be asking you questions for like four minutes on the phone with an attitude and the cops come mad late,” she added.
Cardi later uploaded a video of Leandra thanking her for the donation, and called for others to visit Lesandro’s GoFundMe page.
Lesandro’s GoFundMe account was set up by his brother-in-law with a goal to raise $15,000 (£11,000).
