A teen rapper who was friends with XXXTentacion before his death is recovering in the hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head.
C Glizzy, born Christian Moore, was shot outside a convenience store in Florida’s Pompano Beach on Saturday night by an unknown assailant, WPLG Local 10 reports. The rapper’s brother and a friend promptly tried to rush him to a nearby hospital, but slammed into the wall of an exit ramp on I-95 after losing control of the vehicle en route, according to the outlet.
Glizzy was eventually transported to Broward Health North, where surgeons worked for hours to remove the bullet from his head, WPLG reports.
While the details regarding his injuries and condition have yet to be released, his family’s reports are optimistic. The rapper’s mother told WPLG reporter Madeleine Wright that while her son is “heavily sedated” and “not talking,” she hopes and expects him to recover, Wright wrote on Twitter.
The motives surrounding the shooting remain shrouded in mystery, with authorities keeping a tight lip on the matter even while confirming that an investigation is underway.
“Our violent crimes unit is investigating the incident,” the Broward County Sheriff's Office said in a statement obtained by E! News. “No further details are being released at this time.”
Glizzy’s recent album, “Numb The Pain,” was released in April. Glizzy seems to have been a friend of slain rapper XXXTentacion, and his first Instagram post is an older video of the two posted the day XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was fatally shot.
Glizzy’s shooting came just days before the one-year anniversary of XXXTentacion’s death. The controversial rapper, who was facing domestic abuse allegations prior to his death, was gunned down outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18, 2018. He was 20 years old.
Four suspects have since been indicted on first-degree murder charges in relation to his death.
