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."

Chicago rapper King Von was reportedly killed during a shootout in Atlanta. He was 26.

King Von, real name Dayvon Daquan Bennett, was shot early Friday morning outside the Monaco Hookah Lounge on Trinity Avenue around 3 a.m., AJC.com reports.

2 people are in custody facing charges in the shooting death of a Miami pastor. Miami-Dade police arrested Latravia Charm Bell, 20, and Nathaniel Bernard Roberson, 31, in the fatal shooting of Gregory Byrd last month at The Village Flea Market & Mall.

Both suspects confessed to their roles in the murder. They will be charged with first-degree murder, Local 10 News reported.

Another suspect listed on the arrest form, Mikal Norman, is still at large, the news outlet reported.

Byrd, 54, was caught in the crossfire of a shootout in a crowded parking lot as he walked to his vehicle on Sept. 10. He was pronounced dead at Jackson Memorial Hospital Ryder Trauma Center.

The shootout occurred while two Local 10 News reporters were at the scene working on another story.

Byrd's widow called him a "good family man."

"He was my friend — my best friend, my fishing partner," Dorothy Boyd said in an interview last month. "He was a great man."

Police say the community assisted in the apprehension of the suspects.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD

North Carolina police responded to calls of a shootout between two groups of people outside a daycare center in Charlotte on Friday, Sept. 18.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called to the scene of the shootout around 2:45 p.m. at a daycare on West Arrowood Rd.

Police say 20-year-old Isaiah Kersey and two others went to the daycare to pick up his toddler son, but he was denied by the daycare staff because he wasn't on the child's approved list for pick up.

The staff called the child's mother, who soon arrived with three other men - all packing firearms. An argument ensued in the parking lot between the two groups, which escalated into a wild shootout.

Police said two people in each group opened fire outside the daycare -- which had several children inside. None of the children were hurt. One staff member fell and injured her arm while running from the gunfire.

Kersey was the only person arrested and one firearm was recovered. He was booked into the Mecklenburg County Jail on charges of simple affray, obstruction and resisting an officer.

In 2019, Kersey was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen firearm after he was injured in a shooting in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
