Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed reports of a shooting in Pompano Beach and at 5:40 p.m. tweeted out that the victim had died after being rushed to a hospital. The 20-year-old was struck by gunfire from two armed men during an apparent robbery. He dropped his debut album 17 in August 2017, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Before authorities released the name of the victim, citing the need to identify his next of kin, TMZ published a video of a man it reported as XXXTentacion who was slouched in the driver's seat of a auto and surrounded by onlookers as sirens blazed nearby.

Born Jahseh Onfroy, XXXTentacion was both one of the most popular new rappers to emerge in years, and also a source of consistent controversy over credible claims from an ex-girlfriend that he repeatedly physically abused her while the two were dating. The rapper was shot and killed Monday.

On Twitter, his peers expressed shock and sadness.

Rapper Big Sean tweeted that his "heart dropped" when he heard the news, saying "I feel like we only got to see a glimpse of his artistry".

XXXTentacion's most recent album, entitled?, was a No 1 hit in the USA this year and included the hits Sad! and Changes. J. Cole called him an "enormous talent" with "limitless potential". Around the time of his latest album´s release, he was being released from house arrest as he awaits trial on charges of beating up his pregnant ex-girlfriend.

Videos circulating on Twitter showed Onfroy was sitting in the front seat of his vehicle seemingly unconscious when he was found by witnesses. In March, a judge released him from house arrest so that he could tour.

Spotify last month singled out XXXTentacion as part of a policy not to promote songs by artists known for "harmful or hateful" behavior, but the leading streaming service backed down after charges that it had overstepped its role over vague criteria.
