Lt. Ti Goetz of the Hawthorne Police Department said the cops were called to the 14100 block of Chadron Avenue, where the shooting took place around 4 PM PST. The LA County Fire Department confirmed the death of the rapper—real name Zerail Dijon Rivera, noting 21-year-old was fatally shot.
Goetz spoke on the matter, saying, “It appears to have been a walk-up shooting, and he appears to have been targeted.” From there, he added, “[Rivera] appears to be a gang member.” While there has been no official motive behind the shooting, speculatory posts have surfaced alleging that the shooting was in retaliation for the rapper allegedly disrespecting the mural of the late Nipsey Hussle.
