Details about the death 

Kevin Fret was shot dead in the capital San Juan, the local media says.

Fret was shot at eight times while riding a motorcycle, getting hit in the head and hip.

His manager, Eduardo Rodriguez confirmed: “There are no words that describe the feeling we have and the pain that causes us to know that a person with so many dreams has to go.

“We must all unite in these difficult times, and ask for much peace for our beloved Puerto Rico.”

Samy Nemir Olivares also commented on the death of the rising star on Twitter:

“Kevin Fret was known not only for his music style but also image- who was breaking gender norms in Puerto Rico and stigma about being gay, gender nonconforming, and expressing gender identity freely – in a country where gay people still get mocked, bullied and killed,” the caption reads.

“[Now I see] young gay guys or young lesbians that are looking at me now like a role model, like wow, if he did it, and he doesn’t care what anybody else has to say, I can do it.”

He shared his feeling about coming out, saying “I had everything in my mind, like the day I come out [in Latin trap] as a gay guy, I’m going to make my first and I’m going to be showing my stomach, and I’m going to act like I don’t give a damn about what anybody has to say — with my blonde hair, my black nails, showing my stomach, glittery from head to toe.”
