Local police said two victims had been hit as they sat inside their vehicle late Monday afternoon.

The Florida native was rushed to hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The Pittsburgh rapper was shot during a drive-by shooting in Pittsburgh's Hill District neighborhood Monday, according to a report from WPXI. "An investigation is underway", said Alicia George, Pittsburgh Police spokesperson.

Wopo's manager, Taylor Maglin, confirmed his client's death on Facebook.

He wrote: 'I lost my brother today and it's the worst feeling in the world. "We lost a great person today, but just know I will do everything in my power to make his memory live on forever". 'This was an isolated incident, an apparent drive-by'.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh and the wider rap community is mourning Wopo.
