He was airlifted to Moses Cone Hospital and died later that evening. Fantasia wrote on Instagram, “Ty 😢 Auntie is So Sorry Baby 💔 RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother @riccobarrino & his Stepdad.” Her brother ,Ricco, during an interview spoke about how devastated the family is.

He also mentioned that he didn’t see him that morning like he wanted to. A man has been taken into police custody and charged with first-degree murder. We will continue to keep this family in our thoughts and prayers.
