Some attendees claim police were shooting rubber bullets

Fans of XXXTentacion gathered for a impromptu memorial service last night (June 19), following the rapper’s death.

The 20-year-old was killed on Monday (June 18) after being shot while shopping for motorcycles. He later died in hospital. Police have described the suspects as two black males wearing hoodies, with the shooter wearing a red mask. They left the scene in a dark-coloured SUV after allegedly taking a Louis Vuitton bag.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of fans gathered at the site of his death in Broward County, Florida while another memorial took place on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Videos showed attendees singing along to X’s songs while others showed a number of people riding around on top of a car.

Lil Gnar’s Insta story detailed images of police allegedly shutting down the memorial, with more videos posted to Twitter showing the chaos. Some attendees claim that police shot the crowds with rubber bullets. You can see those videos below.

Went to the X Memorial on Melrose today and it turned into a riot. SWAT showed up and started shooting people with rubber bullets, that's when I left. RIP @xxxtentacion.

Kanye West and Diplo were some of the first stars to pay tribute to the rapper following his death. West tweeted a photo of Onfroy with the caption: “rest in peace. I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here. thank you for existing.”

“This kid was a genius . true artist,” Diplo wrote, later revealing that he had invited the rapper to work with him in LA this weekend. “He made his own rules . He has his faults but he was young and he worked so hard on his own self . He wanted to be better […] He texted me this weekend it was one of his goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album. I Invited him to La this week. I was wondering if he was gonna come […] He was gonna do so much more he promised me.”
