US rapper Melvin Noble a.k.a. Mo3 has died after being shot by a suspect who chased him on foot in Dallas, US.
He was killed midday in an incident on northbound Interstate 35 near Clarendon Drive.
Police said the incident began as the victim was traveling on northbound I-35E at Clarendon Drive just before 12 p.m. A suspect got out of a vehicle armed with a gun and began approaching the victim’s vehicle, according to police. Police did not say if the vehicles had been stopped.
Police said the victim, who sources identified as 28-year-old Noble, also got out of his vehicle and began running southbound on the freeway. The suspect chased the victim and fired multiple rounds at him, striking the victim at least once, police said.
According to police, an innocent bystander who was inside his vehicle was also struck by the gunfire.
Both victims were taken to a hospital, where sources said Noble was pronounced dead.
Police said the innocent bystander was treated for apparent non-life-threatening injuries. Police are still looking for the shooter of the Dallas-based rapper.
Video circulating on social media purports to show Mo3 lying on the highway as someone tries to help him after being shot.
MO3 previously told how he survived a shooting last year. The Dallas-based rapper was arrested back in 2017 in connection with shooting at a Dallas, which saw one person killed.
Tributes have been pouring in following the announcement of his death.
