Police executed a traffic stop and the musician reportedly got out of an Uber that he was riding in and started firing at Palm Beach County deputies.

DeMario said: “We followed him to a building and on the second floor, we noticed some blood droppings on the first floor. We thought he was wounded.

"We didn't have any involvement in the shooting."

Something Was Seriously Going On In His Life He Had To End It So Sad He Didn't Acknowledge The Most High Who Leads And Direct You In The Right Way. Oh The World Society Has No Use For God Rather Do Things In Their Own Strength . Good Luck With That

WTF DoesIt Matter

Now look, I know the police get a bad rep but they REALLY think people are supposed to believe he shot himself just because they posted a picture of his legs with a gun between them 🤔
