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.
