LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Rapper and businessman Master P will pay for the funeral of a 13-year-old Kentucky boy killed in a car crash after a police chase.

News outlets report Ki'Anthony Tyus was a passenger in a car reported stolen that crashed into a utility pole Dec. 22, after a Louisville Metro police pursuit. Ki'Anthony's family says they don't know why he was in the car.

Spokesman Dwight Mitchell says police are probing whether the chase violated the department's strict pursuit policy.

Ki'Anthony was an anti-violence activist, becoming the face of Louisville's "Hood 2 Hood" movement after being hit by a stray bullet while playing basketball in 2015. Percy Miller, known as Master P, met Ki'Anthony after that shooting and stepped in to cover the costs of Thursday's funeral for his "lil soldier."
