Williams is expected to appear in the District "A" Magistrate Court today, Wednesday, January 3, 2018.

Alleyne's father and Rihanna's uncle, Leroy Brathwaite, who was recently charged for selling fake versions of his niece's Puma designer sports gear, has also appealed for an end to gun violence.

Since then Rihanna has added her voice to the chorus of calls for an end to rising gun violence on the island, in the wake of 30 murders, including 23 that were gun-related a year ago.

A man has been arrested and charged for fatally shooting Rihanna's cousin Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne last week in Barbados, according to reports.

Rihanna shared pictures of Tavon and wrote: 'RIP cousin... can't believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!

Barbados police said gun-related deaths in the country have spiked compared to years before.

Alleyne was killed in the Barbadian capital of Bridgetown on December 26, after being approached by a man who shot him multiple times. "Love you man". She used the hashtag "#endgunviolence".

Alleyne, a 21-year-old of Lakes Close, Eden Lodge, St Michael, was shot around 7 p.m., on December 26, 2017.

Shortly after the news broke, Rihanna, who spent Christmas in her homeland, mourned the loss on Instagram.

Tavon was rushed to hospital in a private auto after being shot, but later died from his injuries.

On her birthday, for example, Alleyne posted, "Every day we are happy to have you in our lives".
