    Police say a 23-year-old woman, later identified by rapper and record-producer T-Pain as his niece, was fatally stabbed outside a drug store in Tallahassee.

    Tallahassee police said that Javona Glover was stabbed Tuesday morning by an unknown suspect outside a Walgreens. Police say Glover was bleeding heavily when medical personnel arrived, and that she died shortly thereafter.

    On his verified Twitter account, the Grammy Award-winning T-Pain, who is from Tallahassee, tweeted a link to a news story about the killing and asked for help identifying the suspect. 

    Neither the artist, whose real name is Faheem Najm, nor his representatives returned requests seeking comment. Najm also requested in a tweet that the media leave his family in Tallahassee alone, adding "we are not here for your story."

    Police say the suspect is a black male, about 5-feet, 9-inches tall and was wearing a black T-shirt and white shoes.
