On Friday, Puerto Rico's gay rapper and musician Kevin Fret took his last breath after he was shot multiple times while riding a motorbike the previous day, according to BBC. He was 24-years-old.
He was known to be always vocal about his sexuality and LGBTQ rights. Also, he was described as Latin Trap’s first openly gay artist.
Fret’s manager, Eduardo Rodriguez, confirmed the unfortunate news and said that people must unite in these difficult times.
“There are no words that describe the feeling we have and the pain that causes us to know that a person with so many dreams has to go,” Eduardo said in a statement.
“We must all unite in these difficult times, and ask for much peace for our beloved Puerto Rico,” the statement further read.
Kevin had his own loyal fan base and one of his more popular videos, “Soy Asi,” has over half a million views on YouTube.
