Miami-Dade Police said Tuesday night they have arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with the fatal shooting of the brother of the famous female rapper Trina in northwest Miami Tuesday morning.
Ron Dobson faces a second-degree murder charge, police said in an arrest affidavit. It wasn’t immediately known whether he has an attorney.
Residents said that the rapper’s brother Wilbrent Bain, who goes by the nickname “Gonk,”and the man who shot him were friends and lived around the corner from each other, neighbors told NBC 6.
The incident happened at about 9:35 a.m., according to police.
The two men had a dispute, and the victim began to get off his bicycle when Dobson took a firearm from his waistband and shot him multiple times, the affidavit said.
After he was read his Miranda rights, Dobson confessed to his involvement in the victim’s death, the affidavit said.
Bain lived his entire life in northwest Miami, where he is well known.
“He’s a very good kid,” family friend the Rev. Gary Johnson said of Bain. “It’s unfortunate. It’s a terrible tragedy.”
Mutual friends said they think an ongoing fight between Bain and the man who shot him got out of hand Tuesday.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Trina and her family during this time.
