Haunting surveillance video showing the murder of slain rapper XXXTentacion was played by prosecutors during a Broward County court hearing Thursday.

XXXTentacion—whose legal name was Jahseh Onfroy— was shot to death on June 18 outside Riva’s MotorSports in Pompano Beach. The rapper was about to leave and sitting inside his BMW when a Dodge Journey blocked his exit.

Video shows two men jumping out of the passenger side doors, then racing to the BMW. That’s when they leaned into XXXTentacion’s window, demanding his chain.

He did not cooperate as a handgun and rifle were pointed at him. The men eventually took off with a Louis Vuitton bag after shooting XXXTentacion’s inside the vehicle.

So far there are four suspects in the case— Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome, Dedrick Willliams and Robert Allen, according to court records.

Each suspect is charged with first-degree murder and robbery with a firearm, court records show.

WPLG Local 10 provided the footage to the Miami Herald after prosecutors played the video during a discovery and bail hearing for Allen, one of the four suspects.
