XXXTentacion Dead at 20 After Being Shot in Florida
XXXTentacion was fatally shot in Deerfield Beach, Florida on Monday (June 18). The rapper born Jahseh Onfroy was 20 years old.
According to TMZ, X was shot inside his vehicle while shopping for motorcycles. Witnesses told police that a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from the rapper’s car. X was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead on Monday evening by the Broward Sheriff’s office.
XXXTentacion’s death follows a year in which the young artist experienced breakout commercial success that was frequently overshadowed by his alleged history of domestic violence. Onfroy was facing 15 felony charges, including counts of false imprisonment, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and domestic battery by strangulation, for incidents involving his ex-girlfriend in 2016.
