“#XXXTentacion was shot Monday — TMZ has learned — and an eyewitness tells us he appeared lifeless with no pulse. The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him. XXX was in his share of feuds … but, as far as we know, there were no ominous fights between him and anyone else. He's had serious legal trouble … he's awaiting trial after allegations of domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges. Prosecutors accused him of witness tampering. XXX was on house arrest but the judge recently let him out so he could tour. XXX has had real success … his last album debuted at #1.” 😳🙏 @tmz_tv #WSHH
