AKIPRESS.COM - Fans of XXXTentacion have gathered in Florida to pay tribute to the rapper, who was shot dead on Monday.

Hundreds of mourners laid candles, flowers and teddy bears at the site of his murder, and raised their arms in an "x" symbol at the makeshift memorial.

According to the Los Angeles Times, between 300 and 500 people gathered at Melrose Avenue, blocking traffic.

They joined in a chorus of the rapper's song Al.one: "Please, I don't wanna be alone. I don't wanna be alone".

As the crowd swelled, police became involved and dispersed the mourners shortly before 9pm local time.
