“#XXXTentacion was shot Monday -- TMZ has learned -- and an eyewitness tells us he appeared lifeless with no pulse. The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him. XXX was in his share of feuds ... but, as far as we know, there were no ominous fights between him and anyone else. He's had serious legal trouble ... he's awaiting trial after allegations of domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges. Prosecutors accused him of witness tampering. XXX was on house arrest but the judge recently let him out so he could tour. XXX has had real success ... his last album debuted at #1.” 😳🙏 @tmz_tv #WSHH
