Hip-hop star Trina and her family are dealing with a dreadful loss. Her brother, Wilbrent Bain aka “Gonk,” was shot and killed Tuesday morning in northwest Miami. According to witnesses the shooting took place at about 10 a.m. on Northwest 91st Street. He grew up in the neighborhood and lived there his whole life.
“Now, I’m hurt because this man is gone for no reason at all,” neighbor Demetrius Hammond said. “He was a close friend to me.”
“He’s a very good kid,” family friend the Rev. Gary Johnson said. “It’s unfortunate. It’s a terrible tragedy.”
There is reportedly already one person in custody, but Miami Dade County police are not exposing his identity.
