The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said they are investigating “a developing incident and released this statement:

“BSO homicide detectives said the 20-year-old victim was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach shortly before 4pm when he was approached by two armed suspects. At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking Onfroy. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-color SUV. Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.”

Upon hearing about the rapper’s death social media sent out a stream of condolences.

@kanyewest tweeted: “rest in peace ???  I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here   thank you for existing.”

Some defended the rapper who had a history of abuse and was facing an upcoming court date for allegedly abusing a pregnant girlfriend.

“He never intentionally went out to hurt people he just had his own demons which caused bad reactions, that makes it a mistake. I’m not saying he didn’t do terrible things but he’s gone now so there’s no point belittling him when it’s only friends and family that will get hurt,” said user @ryanevo1995.
