The shooting death of the 21-year-old of Lakes Close, Eden Lodge, St. Michael garnered emotional response from his cousin Grammy-Award winning Barbadian singer Rihanna and other family members online.

Williams is accused of gunning down Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, 21, the day after Christmas in Barbados, Rihanna's native country.

Along with her pictures on Instagram she wrote, "RIP can not believe that just the last night I held you in my arms!" Love you always man! Every third person in Barbados carries a gun with them, the police said.
