A woman fatally stabbed Tuesday at a Walgreens drugstore here was a niece of rapper T-Pain, and he’s asking for help to find her killer.

The Grammy Award-winning T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Rasheed Najm, was born in Tallahassee. His stage name stands for “Tallahassee Pain.”

At 12:29 p.m. ET, he tweeted: “The police are still looking for that coward (expletive, expletive) that just killed my niece at Walgreens in Tallahassee. If you got info pls help us out!”

When officers were summoned to the Walgreens around 10:15 a.m., a female victim was bleeding heavily. She died of her injuries before she was able to be transported to a hospital.

The name of the victim was not immediately released and the rapper did not identify his niece by name.

The suspect, a 5-foot, 9-inch black male weighing about 160 pounds, was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and white tennis shoes.
