Rihanna with her cousin who became a victim to gun violence on Boxing Day in Barbados.

Gun violence and the effectiveness of Caribbean policing may be making the international spotlight, this on the heels of the murder of 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, Barbadian superstar, Rihana’s cousin. The young man was shot and killed on Boxing Night in Barbados while walking through a track near his home. He had been shot multiple times.

Rihanna who had been home for the holidays, expressed grief via her social media pages, writing:

“RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man.”

Back in February, the young man had cited the internationally acclaimed singer as his source of happiness. He had posted a message beneath a photo of them together, in celebration of Rihanna’s 29th birthday. “Your presence in my life is a source of joy and happiness,” he wrote.

Police are now on the hunt for the killer. Rihanna has since called for gun violence to cease.
