Police are investigating the shooting death of rising rap star Lil Snupe, 18, who was shot twice in the torso in Winnfield, La. The rapper, who was a protégé of Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics unsuccessfully tried to revive him.

Authorities say they are searching for an unnamed “person of interest,” but have not yet established a motive for the crime.

Lil Snupe (aka Addarren Ross) was signed to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers imprint last year after passing along a demo at a Meek Mill concert at Grambling State University. He released his first mixtape, R.N.I.C., this spring and it boasted contributions from DJ Khaled, Curren$y, Trae the Truth, Meek Mill and Yo Gotti.
