“MFs Killed my friend last night,” Ice-T wrote. The tweet included a photo of Bryan, alongside co-star Tobias Truvillion and rapper “Havoc.”

“I’m not in a good place behind this,” he posted. “Taheim was a GOOD dude making Positive moves. He wrote & we made the film EqualStandard together. He leaves a Wife&Daughter.Dirty MFs followed him home and Murdered him.”
