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

Investigators surround a vehicle after rapper XXXTentacion was shot on Monday, June 18, 2018, in Deerfield Beach, Fla. Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired.

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.

Rapper XXXTentacion has been shot dead in Florida, authorities say.

He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

While witnesses on the scene said there was no pulse, his official condition is unknown at this time.

Dispatch audio obtained by TMZ revealed the attack was a possible drive-by, and that the rapper was described as "comatose".

After being arrested again for aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend, he donated $100,000 to domestic violence prevention programs and announced an event to support rape victims.

The rapper's music made waves last month after Spotify announced it would scrub his tracks from its platform, as his alleged behaviour had violated codes of conduct.
