Los Angeles rapper Indian Red Boy killed on Instagram Live

Yahoo News 13 July, 2021 - 04:17pm

A rapper in the Los Angeles area was talking with a friend on Instagram Live when he was ambushed in front of viewers, his murder broadcast over the social media network.

Zerail Dijon Rivera, who performed under the name Indian Red Boy, was killed Thursday in Hawthorne. In a press release, the Hawthorne Police Department said they responded to a shooting call at a multi-level gated apartment complex on South Chadron Avenue to find “a 21-year-old male slumped in the front seat of a vehicle parked in the carport to the rear of the building.”

“He appeared to be suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” officials added. “Los Angeles County Fire Rescue responded to the location where the male was pronounced deceased.”

Detectives are investigating Rivera’s death and are asking for assistance from the community to identify a suspect. In their press release, Hawthorne law enforcement shared a link to the young man’s murder. TheGrio is not sharing the footage due to its graphic nature.

In the captured video, at least 12 shots were fired.

Rivera’s friend, social media influencer Kapone, who was on the Instagram Live with him, can be heard asking, “What the f**k? Bro, what the f**k? Where you at?”

“It appears to have been a walk-up shooting, and he appears to have been targeted,” Lt. Ti Goetz told The Daily Breeze.

The rapper’s death appears to be gang-related. Indian Red Boy claimed affiliation with the Bloods. Several videos on YouTube appear to show him disrespecting late rapper Nipsey Hussle, including one of him allegedly vandalizing a mural of the venerated MC. Hussle was known to be Crip-affiliated.

What did Indian Red Boy allegedly say about Nipsey Hussle?

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

Nipsey was murdered outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Central, Los Angeles, in March 2019.

Indian Red Boy, whose real name is Zerail Dijon Rivera, allegedly dissed Nipsey Hussle by defacing a mural erected in Nipsey’s honor, according to Hot New Hiphop.

It is unclear what the mural said.

However, just one day before Red Boy’s death, he was reportedly seen in a video throwing up gang signs, MTO News reported.

The outlet claimed that the signs were "disrespectful" of other gangs in Los Angeles. 

Red Boy reportedly went on Instagram Live the next day to explain why he made the signs, which is when he was gunned down.

Red Boy was shot in the head three times as he sat behind the wheel of his car in the city of Hawthorne.

Prior to being gunned down the rapper was talking online to fellow social media influencer Kapone on Instagram Live before shots are heard.

Red Boy is then seen gasping for breath seconds in the video.

A bloodied Red Boy can be heard saying “get help” before slumping in his seat. 

His friend shouts to him, "Where you at?" to which he answers, "Hawthorne," although he can be seen slipping away in the footage.

The clip has since been removed from social media.

Lieutenant Ti Goetz of the Hawthorne Police Department explained to the press: “It appears to have been a walk-up shooting and he appears to have been targeted … he appears to be a gang member.”

The Los Angeles County Fire Department said Red Boy was already dead when they arrived at the crime scene.

The motive for the shooting has not yet been confirmed.

Police are still looking for suspects in relation to Red Boy’s murder.

Eric Holder was named as the suspect in connection to the death of Nipsey.

He was a member of the same gang as the late rapper, the Rollin’ 60s. 

Holder faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

Holder is in jail awaiting trial after pleading not guilty.

He was arrested two days after the shooting and has since been indicted on counts of murder, attempted murder, and weapons charges.
