Condolences and prayers go out to rapper Trina and her family. Trina’s brother Wilbrent “Gonk” Bain Jr.was murdered this morning in northwest Miami. Bain was shot on Northwest 91st Street around 10 a.m.
NBC Miami reports:
“Bain lived his entire life in northwest Miami, where he is well known.”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.” Miami-Dade Police said someone is in custody, but they have not released that person’s name.”He’s a very good kid,” family friend the Rev. Gary Johnson said of Bain. “It’s unfortunate. It’s a terrible tragedy.”Bain survived a shooting in 2008 and had a record of gun possession, burglary, drugs, and domestic violence involving strangulation, records showed.Neighbors told NBC 6 that Bain 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.”It hit me hard because I just talked to him,” said a neighbor who only wanted to go by “Trimel.” “This killing has to stop. It has to. All of us grew up together and that’s just senseless.”
