AceShowbiz - Another rapper has fallen victim to gun violence. The hip-hop community is mourning the death of rapper Wavy Navy Pooh, who was killed during a drive-by shooting in Miami. He was 28.
WSVN reported that the incident occurred on late Friday, January 14 at an intersection in south Miami. The Quality Control artist, born Shandler Beaubien, was driving a Toyota Camry with his family at the time, Officers stated. Florida law enforcement said that he was with a female passenger and his two kids, a five-year-old and an infant.
At one moment, someone pulled up to the driver's side and fired at least 15 shots at Wavy. As he was struck multiple times, Wavy was pronounced dead at the scene. Thankfully, none of the passengers were injured during the tragic incident.
"An unknown subject in a four-door Lexus, a gray Lexus, approached him from the driver's side, opened fire and then fled westbound on 152nd Street," Miami-Dade Police detective Alvaro Zabaleta told the outlet. "On the front seat, there was a one-year-old child in a car seat that easily could have been struck by gunfire and taken his life."
Quality Control later confirmed the devastating news on social media on Saturday. Writing on Instagram alongside a black-and-white picture of the late rapper, the official account of the music label wrote, "It is with great sadness & a heavy heart that we announce the loss of one of our beloved artist, Wavy Navy Pooh. Our thoughts & prayers are with the family at this time. #RIPWavyNavyPooh."
The label's co-founder and CEO Pierre Thomas a.k.a. P also took to his account to pay tribute to Wavy. "Sad Day Bra. May God Keep Your Family," so he wrote.
Florida authorities have yet to make any arrests as the investigation is currently underway.
