Officers arrived at the scene and discovered the young rapper had already died. Savage promoted his upcoming tape, Too Much Motion, and posted two photos on Twitter just hours before his death.

What Exactly Happened?

Savage, whose real name Brian Thompson, was driving a white Mercedes when two suspects in a black Subaru pulled up alongside him. According to  report by ABC 13, multiple bullets were fired, and the suspects exited the vehicle and fled on San Felipe.

As of now the identities of the suspects unknown, but they were described to be wearing black hoodies along with sunglasses. Due to the large number of bullet casings found at the crime scene, police believe it was a targeted drive-by shooting.
