Tammy Rivera‘s family suffered a devastating loss on New Year’s Eve.

In a post on her Instagram page, the singer and reality TV star revealed her cousin Chris was killed.

Tammy didn’t go into detail about what happened to her cousin, but the Baltimore Sun reported a 17-year-old teen was shot and killed around 10 p.m. Monday night.

A 17-year-old boy became Baltimore’s last murder victim of 2018 late New Year’s Eve, increasing the year’s overall homicide toll to 309.

The fatality was reported just after 10 p.m. Monday. Police said officers were sent to the 4500 block of Green Rose Lane to investigate a reported shooting and found the teenager suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police had not released his name as of Tuesday afternoon.

Tammy, who was preparing to head out to a New Year’s Eve party, wrote, “I’ll drink tonight until the pain is gone.”

My prayers and condolences to Tammy and her family during this difficult time.
