Very sad news. NBC Miami has reported that the brother of rapper Trina, Wilbrent ‘Gonk’ Bain was killed Tuesday morning, around 10 a.m. A family friend and neighbor, named Rev. Gary Johnson, confirmed the news, telling the outlet:

“He’s a very good kid,” family friend the Rev. Gary Johnson said. “It’s unfortunate. It’s a terrible tragedy.”

So what actually happened? Allegedly, neighbors say that Trina’s brother (Gonk) and the man who shot him were friends and lived around the corner from each other. Mutual friends said they think an ongoing fight between the two got out of hand. According to police records, ‘Gonk’ survived a shooting in 2008 and had a record of gun possession, burglary, drugs, and domestic violence involving strangulation. Miami-Dade Police said someone is in custody, but they have not released that person’s name. No official statement has yet been released from Trina’s family. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
