Pharrell Williams took to his Instagram on Monday to share a tribute to his cousin, Donovon Lynch, who was shot and killed by police in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on Friday.

Lynch was one of two people who were killed in a string of apparently unrelated shooting incidents in Virginia Beach Friday night. He was fatally shot by a police officer who claimed he was in possession of a handgun, however, the officer’s body camera was not activated for unknown reasons at the time of the shooting.

Lynch’s death at the hands of police sparked outrage in the community and prompted a demand for transparency and accountability from local activists, the ACLU and others.

Williams added his voice to the chorus of those demanding answers, writing, “It is critical my family and the other victims’ families get the transparency, honesty and justice they deserve.”
