The gunman reportedly ran up to his vehicle and shot him as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer.

"The adult male victim has been confirmed as 20 year old Jahseh Onfroy [sic], aka rapper #XXXTentacion", the sheriff's department said later in a Twitter posting.

The Broward Co. Fire Dept. confirmed XXXTentacion had been rushed to hospital following the incident.

At least one of them fired, and then both suspects fled the scene in a dark SUV, Concepcion said.

Two days after that warning, XXXTentacion was the one who met an untimely demise when he was shot dead outside of a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Without any traditional sort of promotion, his second album, entitled?, debuted at the top of the Billboard album chart in March. He was now awaiting a trial where he faced 15 charges for alleged domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend and witness tampering.

Prominent figures from the music world and beyond are expressing shock and sadness at the shooting death of 20-year-old rap breakout XXXTentacion earlier today.

Rapper XXXTentacion, center, attended the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on October 6, 2017 in Miami Beach, Florida. Kendrick Lamar, one of the most influential figures in hip-hop, heaped praise previous year on XXXTentacion's debut album 17 in which he found a unique rawness.

Videos of what appeared to be Onfroy unresponsive in the driver seat of a auto circulated on social media Monday. In March, a judge released him from house arrest so that he could tour. He was perhaps best known for his single "Look At Me", which was released in 2017.

"I used to beat kids at school just to get her to talk to me, yell at me", he said.
