A rising rapper was killed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania yesterday.

Shortly after news surfaced that XXXTentacion was shot and killed while leaving a motorcycle dealership, police in Pittsburgh were responding to a drive by shooting involving 21-year-old Jimmy Wopo.

The call for help came in just before 4:30 p.m. on Monday.

When officers with the Pittsburgh Police Department arrived on scene, they found two male victims suffering from gunshot wounds inside their vehicle.

According to a press release, both of the victims were transported to a nearby hospital, where one of the victims passed away from their injuries.

While the press release did not release the names of the victims, Jimmy Wopo’s manager confirmed his passing in a Facebook post.
