Miami police are investigating the fatal shooting of Trina’s 17-year-old niece, Suga. Sources close to the rapper confirmed the sad news with TMZ, telling the outlet the teen was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Law enforcement and medical examiners responded to the scene around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday (July 20) on Northwest 13th Avenue near 62nd Street in Liberty City. The outlet reports that Suga is not from the area, and authorities are trying to determine if the shooting was an accident or targeted. They believe she was just visiting and was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Detectives are reportedly shifting their focus to a black Mercedes SUV found about a mile north of the crime scene. Two other women were wounded and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Their condition is unknown. The investigation is still underway.

Trina recently appeared on “Drink Champs,” during which she talked about supporting other women in hip hop and also gave her ex-boyfriend Lil Wayne his flowers. “Golly, in real life though I’m gonna go with Wayne. I’m just saying that’s [Lil Wayne] legend,” she responded when asked “Lil Wayne or Drake?” during the “Quick Time With Slime” segment. She continued, “In a real form, it’s gonna always be Wayne. That’s legendary, iconic, and it’s just always gonna be Wayne, Weezy F. It’s not gonna ever go no different than that. But I love Drake. So, that’s why I’ma take a shot.”
Trina explained her relationship with the New Orleans native and described him as a “great person” further in the conversation. “Wayne, to me, has always been like a great person. Even just going beyond, like back in the day just from our situation and just being young. Sometimes when you’re young and in this industry, you’re just fast, and it just doesn’t work out the way you plan or think it’s gonna work out. You’re 20-something years old, you’re hot in the game. You’re making so much money all over the place, and Wayne is a real — like, one of the most honest guys I’ve ever been around or met. When I say honest … like a real honest person. Like he’s not with the games, and that’s not him. That was just never the situation.”
