Nearly a day after a father and his three-year-old daughter were killed in Louisville’s Jacobs neighborhood, rapper, actor and philanthropist Master P has offer to cover the funeral costs of the young girl.
The father and daughter were identified Saturday as 21-year-old Brandon Waddles and Trinity Randolph, both died from gunshot wounds.
Police responded to the home in the 3700 block of Kahlert Avenue around 1 p.m. Friday. When they arrived at the scene, they found Waddles dead from his injuries. Trinity was taken to Norton Children’s Hospital but later died as a result from her gunshot wounds.
Community activist Christopher 2X told WHAS11 News that Master P spoke with Trinity’s mother and said he plans on paying for her funeral.
Louisville Major Greg Fischer released the following statement on the shooting:
The fatal shooting today of two people, including a 3-year-old, was a terrible tragedy – as is every single homicide in our city. My heart breaks for the families of those impacted by the spike in violence we are seeing. LMPD is working every day to reduce this spike but they cannot do it alone. Public safety is something we co-produce, law enforcement and the community, and we need the community’s help to stop the shootings. If you see something say something. Call 574-LMPD to share what you know, and help us avoid further tragedy.
Metro Police has not confirmed any suspects and are continuing their investigation.
