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.

The prosecutors' office said that Stadler had been seen by a judge "who has ordered him to be remanded in custody". Two are serving prison terms; Winterkorn and the others remained in Germany and are unlikely to be extradited.

XXXTentacion has been pronounced dead by the Broward Police Department after being shot in Florida on Monday. Broward County police appear to have confirmed that the performer is dead.

Dispatch audio obtained by TMZ revealed the attack was a possible drive-by, and that the rapper was described as "comatose".

Tyga, a California rapper signed to Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, said it's "so sad to lose good artist" via Twitter. The rapper was hugely popular on social media, and in March, his album '?' debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.

His most recent album, entitled?, was a No 1 hit in the United States this year and included the hits Sad! and Changes. "I rap about what goes on in every hood in America".

He was released from jail on house arrest late last year and was released from house arrest earlier this year to allow him to tour.

The music-streaming service Spotify announced in May it was removing XXXTentacion's music from its curated and algorithmically generated playlists.
