Florida Rapper Shot D#ad In Front Of His Home
Florida rapper Rollie Bands was gunned down outside his Tampa apartment complex Friday minutes after he dared his critics to meet him at his house in an Instagram post.
“A lot of these n***as know where I live at fr,” the rapper wrote on his Instagram Story, according to HipHopDX. “I sleep in peace. If a na want to smoke I’m at my crib in 5 mins.”
Just five minutes after his post, at around 3:30 p.m., the rapper was shot once in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He was rushed to an area hospital, but couldn’t be regained.
The suspects — who police believe knew and targeted Bands — fled in a vehicle. They remain at large.
“At this time, the shooting does not appear random, as the suspects and victim are possibly known to each other,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in the report.
