In very sad news, it’s been confirmed that rapper Wiz Khalifa’s uncle was shot on Wednesday and passed away in a hospital on Thursday.

Multiple reports are claiming that his uncle, 20-year-old Imani Porter, was shot in the parking lot of a Steak ‘n Shake in Pittsburgh.

According to police, they believe Porter may have been shot while he allegedly attempted to sell heroin to the teenage suspect Jaron Young.

Young is just 17 years old and he has been charged as an adult with criminal homicide.

Wiz took to his Twitter account to mourn his uncle and said he believes Porter had more wisdom than his older counterparts (read tweets from bottom to top):

Our condolences to Wiz and his family during such a devastating time.

    Very sad situation especially since these are two young black men we’re talking about. I hate the street mentality. It’s killing too many young black men and sending the rest to prison for life.

    This is why these fake a-s rappers need to stop glorifying a lifestyle they don’t really live! They make drug dealing look glamorous but it’s really not!

      Ignorance boo, ignorance. Sad world we live in sometimes. Some people think killing someone is a badge of honor. Smh.
