Trina’s Brother Shot and Killed In Miami
Wilbrent Bain, the brother of Miami female rapper Trina, was shot and killed Tuesday at around 10 a.m. on Northwest 91st Street, neighbors said. He was 25 years old. Miami-Dade Police said someone is in custody, but they have not released that person’s name.
Neighbors told Miami’s NBC 6 that Bain, whose nickname was Goonkie, and the man who shot him were friends and lived around the corner from each other at Northwest 91st Street and 24th Avenue. Mutual friends said they think an ongoing fight between the two got out of hand.
“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.”
