While it’s unclear what the exact motive was for XXXTentacion‘s execution, his legal team has been told the fatal shot that took the young rapper’s life was underneath his jaw .
Sources close to the investigation tell The Blast X went to a bank before the bike shop, and took out cash with the possible intent of making a large motorsports purchase. Officials believe the suspects may have known he had cash in his black Louis Vuitton bag when they targeted X outside RIVA Motorsports in Dearfield Beach, FL.
As we reported, investigators have been following up on leads sent in from fans through social media and re-tracing X’s steps and visited locations in the moments leading up to his murder.
We’re told officials have been tight-lipped on the details of the shooting, including how many shots were fired, but his legal team has been informed that the fatal shot was underneath X’s jaw while he was in the driver’s seat of the car. It’s unclear if the rapper had struggled with the suspect prior to the gun being fired.
Detectives are also investigating whether someone was in the car with X before the attack and fled when the shooting started. We’re told the presence of another person has been floated as a theory, but has not yet been proven.
A $3,000 reward has been offered for any information leading to an arrest.
