San Francisco police have released information about a homicide from a month ago, the shooting death of a teenage girl from a famous wrestling family.
Jaedah Tofaeono, 16, was shot around 6:45 p.m. on Friday, July 30, in the first block of Bertha Lane, in the Bayview neighborhood, the police said. She and her 45-year-old aunt, who was also shot, were taken to a hospital. The girl died there; the aunt’s injuries were not life-threatening.
The police department is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the killer or killers.
Retired WWE wrestling star Rikishi shared the police flyer about the case on his social media accounts Wednesday, referring to the girl as his niece. Rikishi — Solofa Fatu Jr. — is a member of the famed Anoa‘i wrestling family, which has produced three generations of WWF and WWE stars including Yokozuna, Rosey and Roman Reigns.
