TMZ first reported that XXXTENTACION was in Miami shopping for motorcycles when his auto was sacked upon during a possible drive-by shooting.

The controversial rapper (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) was awaiting trial on more than a dozen felony charges and allegations of domestic violence including his alleged beating of a girlfriend while pregnant.

Two videos from different angles circulating on Twitter show a man that looks like Onfroy slumped in the driver's seat of the BMW with the doors up while witnesses and BSO deputies check his pulse on his neck.

A Broward County official only confirmed "a developing incident regarding a shooting" located in Deerfield Beach, about 70km north of Miami, in which an "adult male victim was transported to an area hospital".

Videos circulating on Twitter showed Onfroy was sitting in the front seat of his auto seemingly unconscious when he was found by witnesses.

Security at the venue then became involved in an altercation with at least 10 other people, including a 19-year-old who was stabbed.
