Rapper XXXTentacion shot and killed in an apparent robbery attempt
Twenty-year-old rapper XXXTentacion has been shot in Broward County, Florida, and has died as a result of his injuries. The local Sheriff said they received a call of a shooting in Deerfield Beach at 3:57 p.m. on Monday (June 18) and that a young man was transported to the hospital from the scene.
Police says it was something like a robbery attempt since investigators don’t have a motive and no arrests have been made.
XXXTentacion – real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy – was pronounced dead Monday evening at a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital.
It seems that the SAD! singer had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory and was in a black BMW i8 preparing to leave before 4 p.m. when two armed suspects approached him. At least one of them fired, and then both suspects reportedly fled the scene in a dark SUV.
Stephanie Martinez, a witness at the murder scene said “He had his mouth open and his hand out. Two people went over and checked his pulse. It’s just weird because he should’ve had security and stuff with him.”
Other witnesses told police the suspects took a Louis Vuitton bag from Onfroy’s vehicle.
