Flavor of Love star Chandra “Deelishis” Davis is mourning the loss of her niece, Arielle Anderson. The 19-year-old was one of three students fatally shot on Michigan State University’s campus on Monday evening.

“This will never feel normal to me … I can’t believe I’m even typing this. Rest with God, Ari,” Davis wrote in her Instagram post, which included photos and a video of Anderson. “Our family is broken to pieces, and I can’t say how we will get through this, but with God’s help, I know we will.”

The reality star expressed her shock and said her niece was the youngest of three and a “remarkable student” aspiring to be a doctor.

“Have you ever met a young person who was simply ‘Pure in Heart’ … well that was Ariellediamond_ … simply PURE … she never raised her voice past a whisper or gentle laugh,” Davis continued. “She was a remarkable student, attending MSU to become a doctor. The youngest sibling of 3, the last to attend college of her beautiful Moms children. How is it that she was in class doing what she was supposed to be doing, and yet and still her life was taken by a coward who clearly didn’t understand the devastation he was about to cause my entire family.”

Brian Fraser and Alexandria Verner were identified as the two other students killed in the shooting on Tuesday, FOX 3 Now reported. The police said there was no apparent connection between the shooter and the university, and no possible motive was provided.

Earlier in the week, Davis posted an Instagram photo asking for the public’s assistance in locating her missing niece, a student at Michigan State University.

“My beautiful niece @ariellediamond_ is a student at MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY,” Davis captioned an Instagram post. “She was in her classroom in the same building as the active shooter and we have not heard from her. If you know her whereabouts please dm me … in the meantime my family and I ask for your prayers 🙏🏼❤️‼️”

At Michigan State University on Monday night, 43-year-old shooter Anthony McRae, who was not connected to the institution, started firing, killing three and injuring five others, all students at the university. Blavity reported McRae was later discovered off campus and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to Essence, at a press conference on Monday evening, acting deputy university police head Chris Rozman offered his thoughts on the most recent shooting.

“This truly has been a nightmare that we are living tonight but we have remained laser-focused on the safety of our students,” Rozman said.


The interim president of Michigan State, Teresa K. Woodruff, also expressed her feelings on the incident, calling it a day of “shock and sadness.”


In a subsequent update, it was reported that the gunman’s father asserted to have challenged his son about his firearm possession and instructed him to get rid of it.

Anthony Dwayne McRae lied to his father, Michael McRae, who told The Washington Post that he no longer owned a gun. When questioned about hearing gunfire in the backyard, the son said it was fireworks.


Our hearts go out to Arielle Diamond’s family and everyone else affected by the shooting at MSU.
