Hundreds stage impromptu memorial for rapper XXXTentacion in Fairfax District

To His Fans “If He Ever Died” Is A Must Watch Matthew Meadow

A statement from the Broward County Sheriff's Office classified the incident as a likely robbery - XXX's Louis Vuitton bag was stolen - but, so far, no one has been arrested.

As many as 500 people gathered and blocked a portion of Melrose Avenue during an event for slain rapper XXXTentacion Tuesday night.

As seen in videos shot at the memorial, and shared to social media by hundreds who came together in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles, people were seen riding on the tops of moving vehicles and forming mosh pits in the middle of the huge crowd. Around 9 p.m., police officers in tactical gear formed a line along a crosswalk and used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

As people began to scale buildings and then jump off of them into the crowd below a police helicopter was called in. Police said items, such as rocks, were being thrown at them.

He was pronounced dead at 5:40 p.m.

Geneva Ayala created the GoFundMe page in October 2016 to fund orbital surgery that would cost roughly $20,000 after injuries sustained from alleged abuse by the late rapper.

Jahseh Onfroy-known worldwide as XXXTentacion-tragically passed away from a gunshot wound in Deerfield, Florida. It is with great sadness that the news is confirmed in this official statement by his team - manager Solomon Sobande, EMPIRE, Bob Celestin, ESQ. and AWK PR.

XXXTentacion touched the lives of millions around the globe and will forever reside in the hearts of countless fans who listened to his music, attended his concerts, and felt the glow of his uncontainable, undeniable, and unique spirit.

News about memorial services to be issued forthcoming.
