Police say a 23-year-old woman, later identified by rapper and record-producer T-Pain as his niece, was fatally stabbed outside a store in Florida.

Tallahassee police said that Javona Glover was stabbed on Tuesday morning outside a Walgreens pharmacy. Police say Javona was bleeding heavily when medical personnel arrived, and that she died shortly thereafter.

On his verified Twitter account, the Grammy Award-winning T-Pain, who is from Tallahassee, tweeted a link to a news story about the killing and asked for help identifying the suspect.

Neither the artist, whose real name is Faheem Najm, nor his representatives returned requests seeking comment.
