Revenge rapper XXXTentacion was pronounced dead around 2PM PST on Monday after being shot while leaving a Miami motorcycle dealership.

Broward Co. Sheriff's Department confirmed the grave news about the 20-year-old Florida native (born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) to TMZ.

The Piper High School drop-out had been shopping for motorcycles when a "gunman driving a black Dodge Journey ran up to his vehicle and shot him."

A Louis Vuitton bag was reportedly stolen from his vehicle as well, the Daily Mail reported.

Dispatch audio previously revealed XXXTentacion was "comatose" and classified as a "Level 1 trauma patient" when rushed to the hospital.

"Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired," a source told the site.

"The incident was a possible drive-by."

Curiously, the hip-hop star Insta-storied that he was 'planning a charity event for this weekend in Florida' around 11:45AM PST.

Rest In Peace #XXXTentacion 🙏😔 #WSHH
