Friends and family are mourning the loss of musician Half Ounce.
According to a news release shared by the Los Angeles Police Department on Oct. 4, authorities rushed to the scene of the 700 block of South New Hampshire Avenue at 11:30 p.m. after receiving "numerous radio calls of shots fired, with a man screaming."
Upon arrival, police said they located a victim in front of an apartment building, unresponsive, with gunshot wounds. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
The LA County Coroner's office confirmed to NBC4 Los Angeles, that rapper Half Ounce, born Latauriisha O'Brien, was the man who was shot and killed.
Police also told Fox 11 that O'Brien was on the phone with his pregnant wife when she heard the gunshots and also rushed to the scene. The musician is also survived by an 8-year-old daughter, a 2-year-old son and a 9-month-old son, per the outlet.
Authorities believe O'Brien and a friend were walking in the area when a dark-colored SUV pulled up, with the passenger firing shots at both men. Police are still working on identifying the friend, who was able to flee the scene, adding that the suspect is still at large.
As shared to the rapper's Instagram page, O' Brien released a few songs over the past few years under his moniker including, "My Whole Life," "Elevate," and "About It." The musician's last post shared before his passing referenced his upcoming single, "Drop the Ball," which was set to be released on Oct. 14.
