The police are investigating the fatal shooting.

California rapper Slim 400 was fatally shot and killed in Inglewood on Wednesday night (Dec. 8), The Los Angeles Times confirmed. He was 33.

According to the local station KABC, officers were on patrol around 8 p.m. near 7th and Manchester avenues when they heard gunshots. They located the victim “on the ground suffering from gunshot wounds.” Paramedics arrived at the scene and took him to the hospital where he died.
