Rapper Bizzle was killed in a shooting Monday (October 16) in his native Miami.
NBC Miami reports that the homicide occurred at around 7:30 PM.
Bizzle, real name Robert Labranche, apparently became involved in an argument with someone while outside a carwashing business. It is important to note, despite what many news outlets are reporting, that Labranche is not the Christian rapper Bizzle.
The rapper’s son and daughter, both under 10, were in his care during the time of the incident.
“Fortunately they did not see the actual incident, and they are currently right now unharmed with family members,” said Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno.
Police are searching for a black male suspect in his 20s who fled the scene wearing all black.
HipHop extends its condolences to Bizzle’s family and friends.
