Master P has offered to cover the funeral costs of 3-year-old Trinity Randolph after she was fatally shot on Friday (Aug. 14).

According to the Courier Journal, Randolph was shot and killed while playing in her Frozen dollhouse. Louisville Metro Police officials said that her father, 21-year-old Brandon Waddles, was also killed in the shooting.

“She was just 3 years old,” said Trinity’s great-grandmother Valerie Randolph. “It takes a mean, cold, selfish-hearted person to take a little 3-year-old’s life.”

Randolph has become Louisville’s youngest victim of a shooting homicide. The city is on track to have a “record-breaking year of violence,” according to the outlet.

“This a 3-year-old innocent girl that’s gone from her family, from her future, somebody who could have come out of the community and be the next president, doctor, lawyer, teacher,” Master P told the outlet on Sunday (Aug. 16). “This is sad.”

Louisville police have not released any additional details about the investigation and have not released the names of any suspects. Master P has been a philanthropist in Louisville for over 10 years.

“Myself and Christopher 2X for 10 years plus have been raising awareness on reckless shootings and the impact on children and their families across the country,” the “Make ‘Em Say Ugh” emcee said in a statement.

“Now three-year-old Trinity and her father. I will always do my part in Louisville and across the country to keep sounding the alarm bell on this problem,” he continued. “The question becomes how ‘loud’ will we be for Trinity and other kids who are unfortunately in harms way of constant gunfire. Please do your part to ‘Let The Kids Grow.’”

The REVOLT team would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Randolph and Waddles. If you would like to donate to the family’s GoFundMe, click here.
