Wiz Khalifa‘s uncle, Imani Porter, was shot and killed today in Pittsburgh. According to WTAE, an ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh, the shooting took place right outside the Waterfront shopping center while Porter was in his vehicle. Authorities have released the following statement concerning the incident:
“Through the course of the investigation we determined that the victim was seated in the front seat of a Chevrolet Impala when he was shot,” police said in a statement to WTAE. “Two black males were seen fleeing the Impala and leaving the area in what was described as a white Pontiac, possibly a Bonneville. Suspected narcotics were found in and around the Impala possibly indicting that robbery was the motive for the shooting.”
Wiz Khalifa took to Twitter to share his thoughts during this rough time:
Rest in peace Imani. Your with Allah now
My uncle was younger and more level headed than all of us. I would have never seen this happening in a million years
God has a plan #RestWithGodImani
Our condolences go out to Wiz and Imani’s friends and family.
