Fans and mourners of rap singer XXXTentacion leave candles at a memorial on June 19, 2018 outside Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida. 

One day after XXXTentacion was shot dead during an apparent robbery in Broward County, Florida, fans have turned the death scene into a colorful memorial for their idol.

In a gallery posted by TMZ, a chalk portrait of X with a halo is drawn on the pavement, along with loving messages and candles. Orange markings from the police investigation are still seen on the street.

The 20-year-old rapper, who rose to fame from his SoundCloud account, was shot multiple times by two men in a dark SUV, and was officially pronounced dead later at the hospital. Police are offering up to $3000 for any tips to help solve the case.
