Brino was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mimi, the actor’s sister, shared a heartbreaking tribute to her brother on Instagram.

“Saying that you were a blessing is an understatement. You brought light to so many lives and you did so much with the too short of a life that you had,” she wrote.

“I am so so happy to know that I was beyond loved by you and that I forever have a guardian angel by my side.”

A tribute video was also posted to YouTube by a friend of Brino’s with the following caption: “From September 21st-March 9th 2020 we were blessed to have Lorenzo Brino’s Beautiful soul in our lives.”

“The amount of people he touched with his character and charm was unbelievable. He was a loyal friend and an amazing brother. He would always get my back no matter what. Rest In Peace Brother.”
