Rapper XXXTentacion was shot dead on Monday in Miami while he was out buying a new motorcycle. Eyewitnesses earlier said that the 20-year-old rapper appeared "lifeless with no pulse" in his car before the authorities were called. His condition had initially been reported as critical, however, the Broward County Sheriff's office has since confirmed that XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, has been pronounced dead.



According to a police dispatch, the suspects were described as two black males wearing hoodies — the shooter was reportedly wearing a red mask. Witnesses told police officers that a black Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from XXXTentacion's vehicle, a TMZ report claimed.

Earlier, the Broward County Fire Department said that the rapper had been rushed to a hospital. Regarding the attack, witnesses claimed that they heard several gunshots being fired. 

Updates from dispatch audio suggest that the incident was a "possible a drive-by shooting", reported TMZ. "The alleged shooters left the scene in a black Dodge Journey," they added. 



TMZ reported that the 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida. At the time of the attack, he was reportedly leaving the dealer when a gunman ran up to his vehicle and managed to shoot him.

It is known that XXXTentacion had his fair share of feuds with several people but there weren't any serious fights that have surfaced to provide a substantial amount of suspicion.

Serious legal trouble has also been on his list of woes as the rapper was awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. Among other things, he was also facing over a dozen felony charges, along with prosecutors accusing him of witness tampering.

XXX had been on house arrest but recently got released by a judge so he could go on tour after his last album debuted at number one. 

This isn't the first attack against the rapper, though, just last year, he got jumped by a few men in LA. He shared with TMZ that the incident left him shaken enough to tighten up his security detail.
