Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Deerfield, Florida, on Monday afternoon in what police believe was a ‘possible robbery.’
The 20-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital after being rushed there in a ‘comatose’ condition by paramedics, TMZ reported.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed his death, tweeting: ‘The adult male victim has been confirmed as 20 year old Jahseh Onfroy aka rapper #XXXTentacion.’According to TMZ, two armed suspects approached his vehicle as he left a motorcycle dealership where he’d been checking out new rides.
The website said one of the suspects, described as black males wearing hoodies, shot him before both men then left the scene in a black Dodge Journey with dark tint and black wheels.
TMZ also reported that the shooter was wearing a red face mask.
‘Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired,’ a source told the website.
Video taken right after the shooting was circulating on social media Monday, including images of the shot rapper slumped behind the wheel of his car.
In the clip, someone can be seen feeling for a pulse as XXXTentacious appears unconscious. They also claim the suspects took a Louis Vuitton bag from the rapper’s vehicle.
Local law enforcement have appealed for anyone with any information to contact homicide detectives.
Broward County Sheriff’s Office has tweeted that a $3,000 reward is now being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
NBC6 in Miami showed video from the scene with law enforcement gathering evidence from the rapper’s black BMW sports car in which he’d been sitting when he was shot
