According to the news site, the shooting went down at a Shell gas station in Hollygrove, New Orleans. The rapper was reportedly shot multiple times and was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene of the crime. Police have yet to reveal a motive behind the shooting. But, YoungN's past could possibly give some clues as to why his murder occurred.
The late artist -- who was born Desmone Jerome -- had a not-so-clean history. He's faced gun and drugs charges before and was even spent three years behind bars for a second-degree murder charge.
A couple of New Orleans artists have since paid their respects to YoungN. On Instagram, Birdman showed love to his artist.
