TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - 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 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.

Police identified the suspect as Tavon Jackson after interviewing witnesses and processing evidence at the scene. Police released no further information about Jackson.
