The rapper’s 17-year-old niece Toni Chester affectionately called Baby Suga, was shot and killed on Tuesday night during a shooting involving three others. According to reports, police responded to the shooting that took place around 12:30 a.m. in Miami in the area of Northwest 13th Avenue near 62nd Street in Liberty City.
