DALLAS – Rapper Mo3 was shot dead on a Dallas highway on Wednesday, sources tell FOX4.
The rapper, whose real name was Melvin Noble, was killed midday in an incident on northbound Interstate 35 near Clarendon Drive.
Dallas police declined to publicly confirm the rapper, 28, was killed in the shooting, but did release a narrative of the incident.
Police said he was in a vehicle on I-35 just before noon when a suspect approached Mo3’s car.
Both men stopped their vehicles, the victim got out and started running but was shot several times on the highway.
A bystander inside another vehicle was struck as well. Police say that person did not suffer life threatening injuries.
