18-Yr-Old Gunned Down Where Philly Rapper Tata Chapo Was Killed

What to Know

  • A 17-year-old rapper from Southwest Philadelphia known as Tata Chapo was slain Friday night.
  • Police have not made any arrests in the shooting, which shook his neighbors.
  • The rapper's mother had graduated from nursing school on the same day that her son was killed.

An 18-year-old was shot and killed Sunday night just two blocks from where Philadelphia rapper Tata Chapo died earlier this weekend. 

The victim's body was found in the 6000 block of Angora Terrace in Southwest Philadelphia. Tata Chapo, whose legal name was Tauhid Collins, died on the same street Friday night.

On Sunday evening, Collins' loved ones gathered for a vigil to remember the rapper. Moments after the vigil ended, more gunfire errupted. 

The 18-year-old victim, identified as Raysonna Williams, was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds to the neck, ear and temple. He died shortly after.

It remains unclear whether the two shootings are related.

On Friday, residents told NBC10 they were shocked by Collins' death. 

"To see him lifeless on the ground -- it shook me," Tamika Shipman said.

Collins' mother graduated from nursing school the same day that her son was killed, a family friend said.

"He had a lot of love even when he was alive. I've seen it through my neighbors which are his family and friends," Shipman said.
