The 20-year-old was leaving a motorsports shop around 4pm (9pm BST) when the incident happened.

Following the shocking news, XXXTentacion's friends and fellow musicians took to social media to pay tribute to the young rapper.

Rapper XXXTentacion has been shot in Miami, news outlet TMZ reports. Shortly after 6:30 p.m. EST, the Sheriff's Office tweeted: "The adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead". The rapper was now on house arrest at his $1.4 million Parkland home awaiting trial for multiple charges, including domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.

Viewed as one of South Florida's most preeminent, emerging voices in hip-hop, the rapper collaborated with a variety of artists from Joey Bada$$ to Noah Cyrus. In recent months, he faced legal action over his alleged beating of a girlfriend while pregnant, which lead to prominent figures in the music industry to speak out against his music. Investigators are yet to ascertain the motive behind the killing. He was under house arrest while he awaited trial on battery and harassment charges.

Kanye tweeted, "rest in peace".
