According to TMZ The Game is paying for the funeral of the beautiful little six-year-old girl, Tiana Ricks who was shot to death in her front yard by two guys who also shot her father.
6-year-old Tiana Ricks was shot and killed when two men approached her family’s home in Moreno Valley and opened fire, striking Tiana and her father.
As she lay dying, Tiana reportedly turned to her father and asked,
“Are you okay, Daddy?”
The Game read about the tragedy and tweeted,
“This very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has … Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay.”
Game got a hold of Tiana’s family and pledged $10,000 to her family to cover funeral costs.
TMZ spoke with Tiana’s mother Marquia Macklin who said,
“Game told me that he heard about my story and was really sorry. He said that he wanted to help out and put me in touch with his financial team. It costs so much to bury her … sadly $10,000 only covers half of the casket and the plot.”
We’re told the money is being wired to Marquia today. Tiana’s funeral will be Saturday.
As for the shooting, cops are still on the hunt for the culprits and encourage anyone with information to contact the Moreno Valley Police Department.
