Compton rapper Slim 400, a close associate of YG, was shot and killed in Los Angeles.
A rep for the Inglewood Police Department confirmed to XXL on Thursday (Dec. 9) that Slim, born Vincent Cochran, has died following a shooting in Inglewood, Calif. He was 34 years old.
“Inglewood homicide detectives are still interviewing family members, searching for witnesses, and gathering evidence,” the rep said. “At present, we do not have a suspect in custody for this crime.”
The rapper, whose real name is Vincent Cohran, was shot at 7:50 p.m. in the area of Manchester Boulevard and 7th Avenue.
Officers on patrol on 7th Avenue and Manchester Avenue in Inglewood, Calif. shortly before 8 p.m. heard the gunshots and responded to find a man on the ground with gunshot wounds, Inglewood police Lt. Neil Cochran told reporters, according to ABC7 . When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered a man “on the ground suffering from gunshot wounds.”
The victim was treated by paramedics at the scene and then rushed to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he died, the L.A. County Fire Department told CBSLA.
No arrests have been made and there was no word on a motive. The exact circumstances of the shooting were unclear.
Investigators were canvassing the area for security video and witnesses.
The Inglewood Police Department is also seeking the public’s help with trying to narrow down a suspect and has advised anyone with information on the crime to contact Inglewood homicide detectives at 310-412-5246.
