“Game told me that he heard about my story and was really sorry,” said Ricks’ mother, Marquia Macklin. “He said that he wanted to help out and put me in touch with his financial team.”

According to reports, Tiana and her father, Tyrell Ricks, 26, were attending a family function. Two men approached the driveway and opened fire shooting both Tianna and Tyrell. While Tiana lay dying, she reportedly asked her father, “Are you okay, Daddy?” So heartbreaking :(

Tyrell was transported to a hospital after the incident and treated for a gunshot wound in the pelvis. Tiana died early Sunday morning. Her funeral will be held this Saturday.

“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 tweeted.

Police ask that anyone who has information on the shooting contact the Moreno Valley Police Department at 951.486.6700 or [email protected]
