Rapper Bizzle murdered in US

Miami rapper "Bizzle" has been shot dead in a carwash, police said Tuesday.

The 37-year-old musician, famous for songs like "Lip Biting Animal", drove with two of his children to a carwash Monday night and began talking to a youth who soon afterwards shot him.

Bizzle, whose real name was Robert Labranche and who also went by the name of "Chowtime", died at the scene of the shooting, according to police.

Since early Tuesday morning people have flocked to the crime scene to leave floral tributes and to talk about what happened with other residents of this mostly black Miami neighbourhood plagued with street crime.

Social networks have been full of messages from other rappers and others condemning the murder and offering Bizzle's family their condolences.
