Wiz Khalifa’s uncle, identified as 20-year-old Imani Porter, was reportedly shot and killed in his car while at the Waterfront shopping center in Pittsburgh Wednesday (January 8), according to WTAE, an ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Porter was reportedly shot in the head and died after being taken to UPMC Mercy.
Authorities released a statement regarding the murder.
“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 mourned his uncle’s murder with the following Twitter post.
My uncle was younger and more level headed than all of us. I would have never seen this happening in a million years
