According to music news website XXL, police responded to a call at around 3.30am on 21 January and found Rooks at an intersection with gunshot wounds to his face and leg, surrounded by at least eight shell casings.

LADbible has contacted Silento's representatives for comment.

Hawk was previously arrested in August following a domestic disturbance, and he was subsequently arrested the following day after walking into a random house with a hatchet while reportedly searching for his girlfriend.
