The Hawthorne police department are investigating the fatal shooting of a 21-year old who is being called a rapper even though we weren’t able to find any music by him but he’s known as Indian Red Boy. His real name is Zerail Dijon Rivera. 

Officers said that Rivera was discovered “slumped in the front seat of a vehicle” parked in front of an apartment complex with “multiple gunshot wounds”. He was pronounced dead at the scene at about 4:10 pm.

According to Hip-Hop Lately, the shooting took place on an Instagram live stream with social media influencer Kapone. The two friends were chatting when gunshots occurred seemingly out of nowhere. Rivera was heard saying, “get help” before his body slumped over.  The disturbing video has since been circulating all over social media.

Hip-Hop daily claims that there are rumors that the motivation for the shooting stemmed from disrespect shown to a Nipsey Hussle mural.

Authorities are still searching for the suspect responsible for the shooting. Investigators are urging anyone with information about the shooting to come forward.
