Rapper XXXTentacion has been shot dead, according to TMZ.
The rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot outside a motorcycle store in Deerfield Beach, Fla., just before 4.p.m. on Monday. He was transported to a local area hospital.
The Broward County Sherriff’s Office did not identify the 20-year-old as the victim, but tweeted around 5:40 p.m. on Monday, “The adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead.”
An hour before that, the Sherriff tweeted that cops were “currently working an incident regarding a shooting at 3671 N. Dixie Hwy., Deerfield Beach. PIO headed to scene. Dispatchers received a call of a shooting at 3:57 p.m. An adult male victim was transported to an area hospital.”
According to TMZ, the rapper had been leaving a motorcycle dealership in a car when someone ran up and shot him. The website also reports that a Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from the vehicle.
The slain rapper had an extensive legal history. At the time of his death he was awaiting trial for domestic violence against a pregnant ex-girlfriend. He was also facing witness harassment and tampering charges.
Despite the controversy, the rapper had developed a loyal following and his second album, “?,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart in March.
