A transgender woman murdered in Baltimore on Wednesday was the sister of Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock, according to the Associated Press.

“All I can say is my brother showed me how to live your “OWN LIFE” love you soo much man,” Bullock tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “Gone but not forgetten #RIPKEVIN.”

Baltimore police say the body of 26-year-old Mia Henderson was found in an alley in Northwest Baltimore on Wednesday. They’re also investigating if this homicide has any connection to the slaying of another transgender woman in the area last month. Relations between the Baltimore police officers and members of the transgender community is described as strained by the Baltimore Sun.

Meanwhile, Bullock, a first-round pick of the Clippers last year, is preparing for his second season in the NBA.
