Minutes after the death of XXXTentacion was announced, law enforcement was calling in for assistance outside the hospital where his body was brought because his family was involved in an argument in the parking lot.
According to emergency dispatch audio obtained by The Blast, a deputy was calling for backup because "a lot of family members on both sides" were arguing outside the main entrance to emergency room minutes after the rapper arrived via ambulance.
The deputy noted that she was the only official on scene and was worried about the situation outside the hospital escalating. After a short while, the deputy relayed the information that "half of the party went inside" while the other half stayed in the parking lot, however she warned that the growing crowd of fans and media outside the hospital was "getting a little rowdy."
In the audio, you can hear the commotion growing in the background as the deputy requests assistance.
As we reported, law enforcement believed the suspects were wearing purple hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask. As of this posting, no arrests have been made.
