According to reports, Los Angeles-based tattoo artist, body piercer, and member of the Seventh Letter graffiti crew Mr. Trigger (a.k.a. Trigz ONE) was shot and killed on Oct. 9 following a fight that started inside 5150 Tattoo & Body Piercing and eventually ended on Laurel Canyon Blvd. in North Hollywood, Calif.

The 40-year-old tattoo artist, whose real name is Michael Christopher Pebley, had several celebrity clients, including Tyga and Chris Brown, who tweeted and Instagrammed his condolences when he heard the news. 

Witnesses say that the gunman fled in a white Honda Accord, but no arrests have been made. Pebley is survived by his wife and five children. A GoFundMe account has been started to help raise money for funeral expenses.
