The rapper, whose real name is Shandler Beaubien, 28, was gunned down while in a car at Southwest 152nd Street and 127th Avenue, near Zoo Miami.
While Miami-Dade police had not officially confirmed his identity, his death was already abuzz on social media on Friday night. Beaubien was suspected of being involved in a series of shootings in North Miami-Dade over the past year — and police officials are already bracing for retaliation attacks as the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend unfolds, sources say.
According to police, the slain driver was behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry, stopped at the intersection when a gray four-door Lexus pulled on his side and opened fire, killing him. Unharmed: a 1-year-old baby boy, a 5-year-old boy and an adult woman in the back seat.
The infant escaped harm on his birthday, according to police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta.
Social media posts about his death went viral Friday for Beaubien, who boasts over 68,000 followers on Instagram.
