Rapper XXXTentacion shot and killed in Florida

Controversial rapper XXXTentacion has been confirmed dead at age 20, after being shot in Miami on Monday.

XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, had been leaving the Deerfield Beach dealership when he was ambushed by two gunmen and fatally shot inside his luxury BMW.

A vigil will be held Tuesday for a South Florida rapper who was gunned down Monday in Deerfield Beach.

Videos taken at the scene and shared on social media showed the rapper's slumped body in the driver's seat of a black sports auto as a bystander attempted to take his pulse.

He was transferred to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead, the Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed. An adult male was taken to an area hospital.

The auto can be seen knocking down the man and continues to drive away as the man says the license plate of the vehicle aloud. The crash is under investigation by the Border Patrol, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other federal agencies.

Deputies say the shooting happened at 3671 N. Dixie Hwy - a popular shop called RIVA Motorsports. PIO headed to scene. The suspect in the shooting was apparently still at large.

XXXTentacion, the rapper born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.

XXXTentacion, released his debut album in August 2017. He feuded with Drake and was briefly pulled from Spotify after he was arrested on charges of domestic abuse against his pregnant girlfriend. He was still awaiting trial for charges of false imprisonment, witness tampering and battery of the woman. TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour.

The likes of Kanye West, J. Cole, Lil Yachty and Blink-182's Travis Barker have already paid tribute to Onfroy... Senseless bro. No reason. Later identified as a nurse, the good Samaritan spoke to media, the man shared his disappointment with the onlookers who opted to capture the moment instead of offering a helping hand.

"I'm at a loss for words... speechless #RIPXXXTentacion Loved collaborating with you".
