Rapper XXXTentaction (born Jahseh Onfroy) was shot and killed Monday in what seems to be a robbery.
The 20-year-old rapper’s death took place in Broward County, Florida. XXXTentacion was leaving a motorsports store before 4 p.m. when two men shot and killed the rapper.
According to Keyla Concepción, Broward County sheriff department public information officer, the two men were in a dark-colored SUV.
Authorities are looking for the two men, and Concepción says that anyone who witnessed the shooting should come forward.
XXXTentacion rose to fame after the release of his record “Look At Me.” The track went viral, and the Florida native became featured in XXL magazine’s 2017 Freshman Class.
According to Billboard’s website, XXXTentacion’s latest project, ?, which was released in March, premiered at number one.
The rapper was waiting for trial for a domestic violence incident at the time of his death. The incident involved his pregnant girlfriend, and according to court documents, he had been under house arrest while he awaited trial for harassment and battery charges.
However, according to the Miami-Date court documents, the house arrest was lifted in March.
Despite the controversy surrounding his death, celebrities took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the death of XXXTentacion.
