Cali Battle Rapper Tall T Shot & Killed in Broad Daylight
Tall T, legally known as Tyrone Franklin, was sitting on a park bench with his girlfriend at Long Park in Stockton, Cali, when some random person approached him from behind, tapped him on the shoulder, and opened fired once Tall T turned around to see who had tapped him. There are currently no suspects nor motivations for the murder at this time.
His friends and family have come forward to speak to news crews while mourning his passing at Sherwood Forest Park, and it was there that they revealed that although Tall T wasn't a saint while growing up, he was not involved in any type of violence or gang behavior as an adult. On the contrary, he was actually an aspiring musician and a very responsible father, so they can't even fathom why someone would just shoot and kill him like that in cold blood.
"There was never a moment when he wasn't smiling or laughing. Tall stood out because of his style: Hollister clothing all the time, 80's style cardigans, the flat top. Everyone knew Tall and they all loved him. So, I don't know why someone would want to do this to him."
He was planning on releasing a new album later this summer but sadly he won't be able to, however his friends and family are determined to make sure that his music gets released as it was scheduled to.
He was only 23-years-old, when he was shot and killed while enjoying a nice summer day in the park with his girlfriend...tragic.
