Rihanna suffered a family tragedy this holiday season…

TMZ is reporting that the pop star’s cousin, Tavon Alleyne, was shot to death on December 26th in Barbados.

The 21-year-old had been walking home when the unknown man began shooting. Cops are still looking for the man and are asking the public for any leads to help them solve the case.

As it turns out, Rihanna had just seen Alleyne the day before his murder when she came home for Christmas. She said on Twitter:

 “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! #endgunviolence.”

We wish her and the rest of her family the best during this difficult time.
