A young man was killed just outside his home after sharing his address with his followers on social media.
24-year-old Florida rapper Rollie Bands took his followers by surprise as he shared his home address in Tampa on Instagram and dared his critics to come and challenge him in person.
“A lot of these n****s know where I live at fr. I sleep in peace. If a n***a want smoke I’m at my crib in 5 mins,” the man wrote in his Instagram story as he provided his location.
Just five minutes after his final post, the musician was shot dead outside IQ Apartments on Bruce B Downs Boulevard.
According to the reports, Bands was found unresponsive in the parking lot outside his home – exactly where he told his followers he would be.
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has since suggested the suspects knew the rapper and fled the scene after shooting him dead.
“At this time, the shooting does not appear random, as the suspects and victim are possibly known to each other,” the office revealed.
After the news of the 24-year-old’s death had spread, the rapper’s social media profiles were flooded with comments including tributes as well as criticism.
“Rest in paradise to Rollie Bands. So sad and senseless. He should still be alive,” someone wrote.
“Ever since I met u, u was always polite and respectful I’m happy my kids got to share memories with u my condolences to your family and to your daughter,” another added.
Meanwhile, some people slammed the young rapper for sharing his address and daring people to come at him.
“A real role model to kids on how not to throw your life away because you are trying to appear cool on social media,” one person wrote.
“Bro wanted to die, stop acting gangster if you can’t handle the pipe,” another said.
