A funeral service was held Saturday for the cousin of rapper Nicki Minaj who was shot to death early this week.

Nicholas Telemaque, 27, was shot several times on East 52nd Street and Farragut Road Monday night.

One woman who attended his funeral said she'd never seen Saint Vincent Ferrer Church so filled with mourners.

"I can't really express how it felt, but between tears we celebrated Nicholas and he went home,” the woman said. “It was just a beautiful funeral. The pews were filled with mourners. The church was packed."

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
