According to reports, Ryan Breaux, the younger brother of Frank Ocean, died on Sunday morning in a car crash. 

ABC News, who didn't confirm the names of the crash's victims in their write-up (choosing to wait until the families were notified) wrote that two people were killed in a fiery wreck just after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday in Thousand Oaks, California. The investigation is still ongoing, but the car—identified in a Ventura County Star report as "a Tesla sedan"—appears to have left the road and struck a tree in the center median.

The force of the collision tore the car in half, and sheriff's deputies say that it was engulfed in flames when they came upon it. 

On Sunday night, Oaks Christian School president Rob Black said that the school lost "two of our own" from the class of 2019 due to "an automobile accident."

Breaux, as well as another occupant who was in the car, was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene by the local fire department. Per a regional CBS report, the other occupant of the car has been identified by friends as Breaux's classmate Ezekiel "Zeek" Bishop. Both were named in a tribute statement shared early Monday by an Oaks Christian-related Twitter account.

As one would expect after a tragedy, a number of people took to social media to express their condolences. 

We will continue to update this post as new details become available. 

RIP.
