Rapper XXXTentacion, 20, was shot to death during an apparent robbery on Monday outside a motorcycle shop in Florida, authorities said.
As of Monday night, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had not identified two men wanted in the death of the musician, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, the office said in a statement.
Authorities say Onfroy was leaving the Riva Motorsports shop in Deerfield Beach, north of Miami, around 4 p.m. when he was approached by two armed men, the statement said. At least one of them opened fire before fleeing in a dark-colored SUV.
Onfroy vaulted to stardom last year, after a song he uploaded to SoundCloud — “Look at Me” — climbed to No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100. A few months later, he reportedly secured a $6 million record deal with a Capitol Music Group subsidiary.
In March, Onfroy’s sophomore album, “?,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
