An 8-year-old child, Secoriea Turner, was tragically killed in Atlanta over the weekend and Tyler Perry is stepping up to pay for her funeral costs. 

Turner was riding in a car with her mother over the holiday weekend when a bullet pierced their car and struck her, ultimately leading to her death. The incident has caught the attention of many celebs and notable figures including Perry.

I’m outraged today because I’d rather be paying for 8-year-old Secoriea Turner’s college than her funeral. When does this end?

Tyler Perry

This isn't the first time Perry has stepped in to support his community.

He paid for Rayshard Brooks' funeral back in June, who was shot and killed by an Atlanta Police officer and is also paying to put all four of Brooks' children through college.

Perry also helped out the family of a police officer in 2018 in Covington, who was shot in the head while trying to stop a shoplifter.
