Koko Da Doll, one of the subjects of an upcoming documentary on transgender women, was gruesomely shot in Atlanta this week, according to a statement. She is 35 years old. Cinetic Media, an advocacy group representing “Kokomo City,” which highlights the stories of four black transgender sex workers in New York City and Georgia, confirmed via email that the transgender woman killed Tuesday in Atlanta was Koko Da Doll.
Atlanta police and the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office have not released the details of the victim in Tuesday’s shooting. Kokomo City Director D. Smith told Variety that the killing was difficult to process. Atlanta police said the shooting happened Tuesday at 10:42 p.m. at an address in the shopping center. Police said the victim died on the spot.
Koko Da Doll’s death is the third fatal shooting of a transgender woman in the city since the beginning of this year, the police department said in a statement Friday. Producer Harris Doran said in an Instagram post Thursday that he was saddened that Koko Da Doll had found some success as a rapper moving on with her life. He told him that the matter was unbearable to process.
Koko struggled to get out but couldn’t. She does a great job in the movie. And you will surely fall in love if you watch that movie. Police said there is no evidence so far to suggest that the victims were targeted on the basis of their gender. Investigators found no such evidence that the victim identified as transgender or a member of the LGBQ+ community.
The police informed us that these cases are only temporary and there are no acts of violence. GLAAD announced the death of Koko Da Doll, also known as Rashida Williams, on Friday. Today Williams is mentioned as living. “All transgender people deserve to live in safety and acceptance. Their families, their communities, loved ones and all can support them to be freer,” said the LGBTQ advocacy group.
Police said the case is still under investigation after a dispute on January 9 and also after a dispute on April 11.
