It’s with a heavy heart that I report Fantasia‘s 18-year-old nephew, Tyquan Vonricco Washington, was shot and killed in Greensboro, North Carolina on Tuesday morning.
Tyquan is the son of recording artist, Ricco Barrino.
FOX 8 reports Tyquan’s was found suffering from a gunshot wound at 10:54 a.m. on the 700 block of Hyde Drive.
Emergency crews performed life-saving measures but Tyquan was pronounced dead at Moses Cone Hospital.
Ricco took to social media and posted a love letter to his son.
Fantasia remembered her nephew by sharing videos of him dancing.
Police have arrested David Lee White, 21, of Greensboro in connection to the shooting.
White has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held in the Guilford County jail without bond.
My sincerest condolences to the Barrino family.
