Rapper Xxxtentacion shot and killed in South Florida

Rapper Xxxtentacion shot and killed in South Florida

Rapper Xxxtentacion was shot in South Florida on Monday, USA TODAY has confirmed.

The rapper (real name: Jahseh Onfroy) was gunned down outside of a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Fla., the Broward County Sheriff’s Office told USA TODAY.

Rescue workers transferred the 20-year-old to North Broward Hospital. At 5:40 p.m. ET, local police tweeted that “the adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead.”

Authorities in Florida say they’re searching for two suspects in the fatal shooting.

XXXTentacion had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory, the sheriff’s office said. He was in a black luxury vehicle and preparing to leave when two armed suspects approached him. At least one of them fired, and then both suspects fled the scene in a dark SUV.

Investigators say the shooting may have been a possible robbery.

Xxxtentacion began to gain mainstream attention in early 2017 after uploading his single, “Look at Me!” to Soundcloud. His album “17” landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and in March, XXXTentacion’s album “?” debuted at No. 1.
