He was transferred to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead, the Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

Earlier in the day, TMZ reported that Onfroy had "no pulse" following the incident.

Broward County deputies are actively looking for the two men and asking anyone who witnessed the shooting to come forward, Concepción said. Helicopter video showed the same vehicle at the exit of a dealership parking lot.

The Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed that police had responded to a shooting in the area, and that an adult male victim had been taken to the hospital.

XXXTentacion released two studio albums, 17 and?, with the latter reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart in March.

The 20-year old rose to unexpected fame after his debut song "Look at Me" went viral on social media and the audio platform SoundCloud in 2016.

Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, better known as XXXTentacion, was killed while shopping for motorcycles in Miami, according to police.

He faced 15 criminal charges at the time of his death - including one of aggression against a pregnant woman. He was sent to jail in December 2017 for violating bond in the domestic battery case, but was later released on house arrest.

His music was recently removed from Spotify's official playlists and recommendation features, amid a new policy targeted at "hate content and hateful conduct".

Others acknowledged Onfroy's failings, but honoured the rapper's impact on the hip hop community and called for anyone praising his death to reconsider what they are doing.

"Rest in peace I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing", Kanye West captioned a picture of XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroyon, on Twitter.
