Nipsey Hussle was reportedly gunned down in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Reports out of Los Angeles state Nipsey Hussle was shot outside of his Marathon Clothing Company store.

According to TMZ, there was gunfire at the store in September 2018, but no one was shot then, and Nipsey was not there. After speaking to law enforcement, TMZ reports that three people were struck by shots, and one of the victims has reportedly succumbed to the injuries in a nearby hospital. It's unclear if that person is Nipsey.

Before the shooting, the rapper tweeted a cryptic message saying, "Having strong enemies is a blessing".

He also played down the idea of a government of national unity, saying: "I don't in all honesty think that it is practical". The failure by Parliament to agree the terms of Brexit has left businesses unable to plan even a few weeks ahead.

He is also well known for his gang affiliation in the neighborhood as well as a member of the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips.

Approximately one hour after news broke of this afternoon's shooting, TMZ has reported that Nipsey Hussle is dead, at 33 years old. "We dealt with death, with murder. I think L.A. suffers from that because it's not normal yet we embrace it like it is after a while".

In 2017, Nipsey singed a joint deal with Atlantic Records, dropping off his Grammy-nominated debut album Victory Lap previous year.

This is a developing story.
