Following the horrific and tragic murder of an 8 year old in Atlanta media mogul #TylerPerry has stepped in and offered to pay for her funeral arrangements!
Secoriea Turner was fatally shot Saturday located in the same exact location Georgia resident #RayshardBrooks was murdered last month, reports The Grio.
“When so many Black people like George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks were killed I was outraged and did what I could to help their families. When a white police officer was shot in the head trying to stop a shoplifter in a suburb outside of Atlanta I was outraged and I did what I could to help him and his family.”
Tyler goes onto share his feelings upon the issue of violence within the Black community.
“I’m outraged today because I’d rather be paying for 8-year-old Secoriea Turner’s college than her funeral. When does this end?”
Reports read that the incident took place over the weekend, Secoriea’s mother, Charmaine Turner, had pulled into a parking lot on University Avenue. Turner was then approached by a group of armed people who had reportedly blocked the entrance. Supporting details have yet to been uncovered as to why the incident took place, one of the suspects opened fire, striking the car multiple times.
Secoriea was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
