According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, the fatal shooting was first reported at a Deerfield Beach motorsports shop at 3:57 p.m. Sheriff's officials said that XXXTentacion was approached by "two armed suspects" as the artist was leaving the dealer and then one of those assailants fatally shot him. In addition, the department confiremd the victim was indeed the 20-year-old rapper.

TMZ reported that as the rising hip-hop star was leaving a motorcycle dealer, someone started firing shots at his auto.

A dispute over the attention of a young woman ended with XXXTentacion slumped over the drivers seat of his vehicle on Monday at about 2 pm PST, or 5 pm in Florida.

The rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was pronounced dead Monday evening at a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. As he left a motorcycle dealership, several men shot in his direction.

The rapper, whose grim, often suicidal rhymes propelled him to the top of the United States chart just months ago, was said to have had his second album debuted in March at the top of the Billboard charts.

The rapper was also facing more than a dozen felony charges and prosecutors accused him of witness tampering.

"Rest in peace I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing", he wrote. A judge in March granted his request to be freed from house arrest in order to take his music on tour.

At the time of his death, he was awaiting trial for a domestic violence incident involving his pregnant girlfriend, according to court documents.

In May, he was one of the artists temporally banned from Spotify's in-house playlists due to its policy of not promoting artists with a history of alleged hateful conduct.

"This got me f-ked up". "He notched a No. 1 album in March with his sophomore effort "?" and had a top 10 hit with "Sad!". "God bless his family, friends and fans", J. Cole tweeted. Witnesses said on Twitter that the rapper appeared "lifeless".
