Two other people were wounded in the shooting outside Marathon Clothing, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing law enforcement sources.

According to the newspaper, Hussle, 33, was shot multiple times and rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His death sent shockwaves through the U.S. entertainment world, with celebrities posting memories of the musician on social media.

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement that a shooting was reported about 3:20 p.m. PDT (22:20 GMT) in the area of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard, and that three victims were transported to a hospital where one was pronounced dead.

A police department dispatcher declined to confirm the identity of the victims and a spokesman did not respond to questions.
