A law enforcement source told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench that the victim is the Haitian American rapper, whose real name is Elvis Millord.
Records show that Millord came to the U.S. at the age of 12 from a town near Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Those records say his net worth is $1 million. He gained a lot of attention in 2015 from his hit single “Blow a check.” Another well-known song that he performed, ironically, was called “Love, Money and Bullets.”
Dollaz, 30, told police that a silver SUV pulled up alongside it and someone in that vehicle fired multiple gunshots striking him.
Dollaz, who suffered several gunshot wounds in the left leg, told authorities he made a U-turn towards Miami Beach and was able to flag down a Miami Beach Police Department officer on 41st Street.
The wounded man said that he was coming from a private party in Miami Beach but did not have any altercations prior to the shooting, according to police.READ MORE: Report: South Florida Counties Have High COVID Levels, Despite CDC Numbers
