DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The lawyer for slain rapper XXXTentacion says detectives believe he was fatally shot in a random robbery while likely planning to buy a motorcycle.

Attorney David Bogenschutz said Tuesday that investigators also told him the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, had visited a bank shortly before the shooting and possibly withdrew cash for the purchase.

No arrests have been made in Monday's shooting. Authorities say two men were involved and both fled in a dark SUV.

XXXTentacion was shot outside Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida, while sitting in his luxury BMW electric car.
