UPDATED 7:14 p.m. ET: The Broward County Sheriff's Department released a statement that XXX was approached by two armed men, and one of them opened fire on the rapper. Investigators believe it was a possible robbery.
A representative for the Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed to Complex that the man who was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital was Jahseh Onfroy, a.k.a. XXXTentacion.
See original story below.
The 20-year-old, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was reportedly shopping for motorcycles in Florida when a gunman ran to his vehicle and opened fire. Dispatch audio indicates the incident was possibly a drive-by, with the alleged shooter or shooters having potentially left the scene in a black Dodge Journey, Chevy Tahoe, or Jeep Grand Cherokee. "Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX's vehicle," the site writes.
The Broward County Fire Department told TMZ X had been rushed to a hospital; eyewitness claimed he had no pulse. Witnesses told the outlet they heard multiple shots. A source confirmed with Variety that Onfroy is in critical condition.
"There was a shooting in Deerfield. Our officers are on the scene and we're gathering information," Jonathan Fishman, a Broward County Sheriff's Office spokesman, told Miami New Times. "We can't confirm anything else right now but will release more information soon."
Complex reached out to Riva Motorsports, where X was shopping, and an employee confirmed "there was an incident" at the location, but did not specify what took place.
Videos circulating Twitter show Onfroy sitting in the front seat of his car seemingly unconscious. The footage shows witnesses attempting to check the rapper's pulse, but shows no obvious signs of bullet wounds or blood.
XXXTentacion is currently awaiting trial for domestic violence charges against his pregnant girlfriend.
