Music producer Pharrell Williams is using his influence to seek justice for his cousin, Donovan Lynch.
Lynch, 25, was one of two people killed in separate shootings that left eight innocent bystanders wounded on March 26.
Lynch was killed by a police officer who claimed he had been waving a gun.
Virginia Beach Police Chief Paul Neudigate later told reporters a firearm was found nearby. He said the officer was wearing a body cam but, "for unknown reasons," it was not functioning, WTVR reported.
Former Bad Girls Club Season 17 cast member Deshayla Harris was also killed during a separate shooting on Friday night in Virginia Beach.
Following the shootings, three men ranging in age from 18 to 22 were arrested on Saturday and charged with felonious assault and firearms possession.
Pharrell, 47, shared a tribute to Lynch on his Instagram.com page on Monday, March 29.
He captioned an image of Lynch:
"The loss of these lives is a tragedy beyond measure. My cousin Donovon was killed during the shootings. He was a bright light and someone who always showed up for others. It is critical my family and the other victims’ families get the transparency, honesty and justice they deserve. Virginia Beach is the epitome of hope and tenacity and, as a community, we will get through this and come out even stronger."
