Law enforcement sources tell TMZ paramedics attempted life-saving measures on Ty, and he was transported to Moses Cone Hospital … but died shortly after.

Cops have arrested a 21-year-old suspect, who’s been charged with first degree murder.

Fantasia’s musician brother and Tyquan’s father, Ricco, told the publication he’s “completely devastated,” because he didn’t get to see his son this morning, per their usual routine.

Fantasia’s other brother, Xavier, has been in the hospital for months recovering from a critical motorcycle injury, as well.
