XXXTentacion Shot Dead
June 19, 2018
Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed during an apparent robbery in Broward County, Florida, on Monday. TMZ reports that the 20-year-old, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was fatally wounded in his black BMW while leaving a motorcycle dealership. The suspects were driving by in a black Dodge Journey and have been described as two black males wearing hoodies; the shooter was wearing a red mask. Onfroy began recording under the moniker XXXTentacion at the age of 16, releasing his first music via SoundCloud in 2014. He released what would become his breakout hit, “Look at Me!,” in December of 2015. At the time of his death, Onfroy was awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He's also facing more than a dozen felony charges, including witness tampering. Last year, Onfroy was jumped by a bunch of guys in Los Angeles, and initially thought Migos was responsible. He later apologized for this false allegation.
