Aspiring rapper Indian Red Boy was shot and killed in Hawthorne, California, as he streamed live on social media.

The 21-year-old performer, real name Zerail Dijon Rivera, was on Instagram Live when someone opened fire on Thursday, July 8.

In a graphic video shared across social media over the weekend, Indian Red Boy is shown on his Instagram Live feed smiling and talking to a male friend when at least 12 gunshots ring out. The startled friend says, “What the fu–? Bro, what the f—? Where you at?” Indian Red Boy struggles to speak and whispers “I’m in Hawthorne,” before dropping his phone. Urban Hollywood 411 has chosen not to embed the video because of its graphic nature.

Officers responded to the shooting at 14124 S. Chadron Avenue at 4:10 p.m., according to a press release issued by the Hawthorne Police Department. Officers located a 21-year-old man slumped in the front seat of a car suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, police said. Paramedics from the Los Angeles County Fire Department pronounced the victim deceased at the scene.

The suspects fled. The Hawthorne Police Department told Urban Hollywood 411 “a gang motive is something police are looking at.” As of Monday morning, no arrests had been made. Detectives urged anyone with information to contact the police department.

Los Angeles television station KCAL9 covered the police investigation on Thursday night’s 10 p.m. newscast. “They responded earlier this evening to reports of a man who was shot in the face and died at the scene,” helicopter reporter Desmond Shaw said live from Sky9.

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office, the man who died has been identified as 21-year-old Zerail Rivera. His place of death was listed as a “vehicle” and an autopsy is pending. The coroner’s website said Rivera was born on Feb. 14, 2000.

    1. Police started looking in to the matter, but soon realized with diminished forces and money it wasn’t possible and went home. BLM will just have to figure it out.

    2. When President Biden was informed about this horrible loss of a possible future nuclear scientist or director of genetic research at the UCLA Lab he was horrified ! Biden stated ” Smart dead black kids are just as smart as POOR dead white smart ……UUUH…..smart uhh Hey I’m serious about this and I’m going to get in trouble AREN’T I??????

    1. Darwin Awards are for those who jump out of the gene pool due to their own stupidity, preferably before they have reporduced – not for those taken out of the gene pool by others.

  1. You know the neighborhood is bad when reporters have to cover it from the air.

  2. Gee. I remember when the very sane thing happened to Nat Cole and Billy Eckstine. Not.

  3. What is it about rappers that other blacks hate so much? Or, was it white supremacists who shot him?

  4. Dude was a straight up gang banger, seen on several videos with his gang banger buddies throwing signs and smoking herbs. This is your culture, Black America. Sad to say but nothing will change until y’all stop loving it.

  5. Stfu racists… how ‘bout the Italian and Irish Mafia that is your culture? The Neo-Nazi and other white supremacist groups or attitudes like yourselves. Your race is no better than anyone else’s. ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. Speaking of which, originally the U.S. was setup in favor of whites. Making them the so-called demigods of this land. This is why most of the majority prospered. It was unfair from the beginning of this nation but we, all races, are tearing that sh** all down. Statue by statue. How y’all like the apples? Y’all come back now, ya hear??

      1. Oh! I forgot to mention. Thank you guys in advance for the Reparations checks.

        Better late than never.

  6. Why is it that this video has been completely scrubbed from the internet – was it too graphic with the blood coming from his nose? Why wasn’t the murder of Ashli Babbit also scrubbed from the internet like this was? It was graphic and she had blood coming out of her nose, yet the video was widely available on YouTube and even mainstream news like Fox had it on their site. The reason is because the (alleged) killing of Ashli Babbit was graphic video that we were SUPPOSED to see, Normally they take stuff like that down. But we were supposed to be traumatized by it and we were supposed to blame Trump supporters for her death. That’s why they wanted us to see THAT graphic video but not this one.

  7. FBI stats: white on white fatalities 81%……. Black on black fatalities 89%…. Oooooh. You have 8% advantage. Fix your own business and then maybe you can see past your own inward, brainwashed prejudices to help other people’s.

  8. He chose this life, to change hoods, and pillow talk. He did remove himself indirectly.
