An impromptu memorial gathering for XXXTentacion was held in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Hundreds of fans gathered in L.A.'s Fairfax district to mourn the loss of the Florida rapper, and things got a bit hectic.

The memorial was organized by Adam22 of No Jumper podcast who invited fans of the late rapper to gather in front of his bike shop on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.

According to the Los Angeles Times, between 300 and 500 people gathered at Melrose Avenue near Spaulding, blocking traffic, climbing on rooftops, and even forming a mosh pit. Other attendees formed a candlelight vigil in the middle of a road.

Police became involved at 7:20 p.m. local time. Initially, several police cruisers blocked the intersection around the group, and shortly before 9:00 p.m., more police were called to assist, outfitted in riot gear.

Things reportedly escalated with some members of the crowd jumping on the hood of a news van, surrounding vehicles, and throwing things at police. An LAPD helicopter estimated there were 1,000 people gathered and sent out orders to disperse the crowd. Footage from the gathering can be seen below.

XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot and killed Monday at age 20 in Deerfield Park, Florida in what appears to have been a robbery. No suspects have been charged with the crime.

In related news, XXXTentacion's management have released an official statement about his death.
