XXXTentacion has been shot dead in Miami, according to The Broward Co. Sheriff's Dept.

 

The 20-year-old rapper was out shopping for motorcycles in South Florida, and as he was leaving, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him, according to TMZ. Though, dispatchers say it could've been a possible drive-by. The alleged shooters left the scene in a black Dodge Journey.

 

The outlet reports that an eyewitness said that the rapper appeared to be lifeless and had no pulse. The bystanders say they heard multiple shots fired. His condition is unknown at this point, but he was rushed to the hospital as a "level 1 trauma," and was comatose. 

 

XXX was a controversial artist with a lot of enemies, but no one is an official suspect yet.

He was awaiting trial for domestic abuse allegations against his pregnant girlfriend. He was also accused of witness tampering and a slew of other charges. 

 

XXX was on house arrest but was released to go on tour and was putting out music. His album 17 was highly acclaimed by people in the industry including Erykah Badu and Kendrick Lamar.
