Trina’s Brother Shot & Killed, Suspect Arrested
The younger brother of Miami rapper Trina has been fatally shot, sources indicate.
On the morning of Tuesday April 23, Wilbert “Gonk” Bain – brother of former Slip-N-Slide rapper Trina – was shot and killed in his native Miami. Now, police announced that they have arrested 27-year-old Ron Dobson in connection to the murder.
According to NBC 6, Dobson and Bain got into a dispute at approximately 9:35 AM on Tuesday. When Bain got off his bicycle and approached Dobson, Dobson pulled a firearm from his waistband and shot Bain multiple times.
Neighbors told sources that the two lived on the same block and were friends, but that a feud had been ensuing between them prior to the murder.
As of now, Dobson has been charged with second-degree murder and is currently being held without bond. Bain had survived a previous shooting in 2008, and had a rap sheet that included gun possession, drugs, burglary and domestic violence.
XXL sends its condolences to the family and friends of Trina and her late brother.
