Rapper XXXTentacion has died at the age of 20 after being shot in Miami on June 18.
The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles when a gunman approached him and shot him in his car as he was leaving, according to TMZ. On the scene, witnesses described XXXtentacion as having no pulse and appeared to be “lifeless.” “The adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead,” The Broward Sheriff’s Office tweeted following the shooting.
While it is unclear at the time as to why he was a target, the months leading up to his death were quite rocky. Before the shooting, XXXTentacion was awaiting trial after he was accused of assaulting his pregnant ex-girlfriend in 2016. He was also released from jail back in December after being hit with 15 felony counts of witness tampering and harassment in connection with the same 2016 case, according to the Los Angeles Times. In addition to his legal troubles, XXXTentacion has been extremely public about his battles with depression.
