It’s been confirmed, Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed Monday in Florida by an unidentified gunman who fled the scene, the Broward County sheriff’s office has confirmed.
TMZ reports the 20-year-old musician was leaving a Deerfield Beach, Fla., motorcycle dealership in a black BMW when he was approached by the shooter, who allegedly nabbed a Louis Vuitton bag from the vehicle.
A witness told the gossip site that the rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, appeared “lifeless with no pulse.”
The sheriff’s office said XXXTentacion was taken to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Dispatch audio obtained by TMZ revealed the attack was a possible drive-by, and that the rapper was described as “comatose.”
XXXTentacion has made headlines in recent months for a string of legal problems stemming from a 2016 domestic violence arrest.
The rapper, who stands accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend, was slapped with 15 new felony charges in December, including witness tampering and witness harassment.
Prosecutors reportedly believe the musician — by way of recorded calls he made in jail — attempted to coerce his girlfriend into dropping her case against him.
