Los Angeles rapper Indian Red Boy was killed last week in a brazen shooting that was broadcast live on Instagram, according to several confirmed reports.
Red Boy, whose real name is Zerail Dijon Rivera, was 21 years old.
The shooting was an apparent ambush that happened shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday near the 14100 block of Chadron Avenue in the Hawthorne district of Los Angeles, where Rivera was sitting in his car and talking to a friend online, police said.
The unwitting rapper was filming himself on social media from the front seat of his car when an unknown assailant walked up to the driver’s side window and opened fire multiple times.
“It appears to have been a walk-up shooting, and he appears to have been targeted,” said Lt. Ti Goetz of the Hawthorne Police Department, who added that Rivera “appears to be a gang member.”
The gunman who fled the scene remains at large, and police have not announced any other developments in the case. The suspect cannot be seen in the footage.
