Kodak Black helped the family of a slain police officer by donating money to a crowdfunding site.
On Oct. 3, South Carolina police officer Terrence Carraway was shot and killed when he was investigating a child sexual assault case. Carraway went to the home of 74-year-old Fred Hopkins to converse with his adult son, and that’s when Hopkins opened fire. Six other officers were wounded during the shooting as well.
Upon hearing the news, Kodak donated $2,500 to a GoFundMe page set up for Carraway by his colleagues at the Florence County Sheriff’s Office. The story reportedly “made a big impression” on the Florida rapper, who gave the donation under his real name Billy K. Kapri. He also didn’t want anyone to know about it.
According to CNN, Carraway was a line supervisor with the Florence Police Department, and he spearheaded a camp for local disadvantaged children called Camp Fever. Plus, he was well-respected by his fellow officers and extremely connected to the community.
“He was a giant of a man, the proverbial gentle giant, and I loved him,” said Chief Allen Heidler. “Terrence was the epitome of a community police officer. This was his life, and this is what he wanted to do.”
At this time, Kodak hasn’t mentioned anything about donating the money.
