Rising rapper YNT Juan was tragically gunned down over the weekend.
The 17-year-old, whose real name is Juan Bautista Garcia, was found murdered inside of a parked vehicle in Hartford, Connecticut, around 5:40 p.m. Sunday afternoon. As of now, authorities have not released a motive nor any suspect information relating to his death.
Just hours before his passing, the teenager took to his Instagram to promote his latest music video, “Power Remix,” which he released last week.
“RUSH THAT FOR ME GET ME 10K For Next video to Drop❤️🐐 LOVE ALL MY SUPPORTERS I GOT SUM SHII FOR YA OTW,” Juan wrote. Following news of his death, fans and loved ones flocked to leave their condolences under the IG clip. The visual currently has 7,500 YouTube views.
A childhood friend of Juan’s told local media that the teen never used social media to “talk about drama.” Instead, he used his platform to uplift his friends and spread his music to his over 25,000 Instagram followers.
We send our condolences to YNT Juan and his entire family.
