Fantasia Barrino’s Nephew Killed In Shooting; Suspect Charged with First Degree Murder

*Fantasia Barrino is mourning the tragic death of her oldest nephew.

Tyquan Von Ricco Washington, the son of Fantasia’s musician brother, Ricco, was found with multiple gunshot wounds on the road in front of a home in Greensboro, N.C., according to the Greensboro Police Department. He was 18.

Barrino shared the sad news on Instagram Tuesday, saying … “Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother & his Stepdad.”

Police say the teen was shot during a dispute between himself and 21-year-old David Lee White, Jr. that spilled out into the street. While paramedics tried to save him, he was pronounced dead at Moses Cone Hospital.

Hours after Washington’s death, White was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and is being held in the Guilford County Jail without bond, according to police.

Tyquan’s death comes as Fantasia’s brother Xavier has been in the hospital for months recovering from a critical motorcycle injury.
