The man killed near the set of a Sexyy Red music video has been identified as 36-year-old Anthony Dennis. Broward County Sheriffs say Dennis was one of two people shot at a flea market where Red was shooting a video earlier this month. Dennis was declared dead at the scene while the other victim was taken to hospital. However, police have declined to provide the identity of the hospitalized individual.

Red took to social media after the shooting to deny any connection between her video shoot and the incident. “I send my condolences to the family of the man who lost his life and prayers up for the person who was wounded. But I gotta address the rumors that it happened at my video shoot bc shit is not true, at all. To be clear it happened at a gas station across the street from my video set. Florida Highway Patrol and Broward County Sheriff confirmed that the shooting wasn’t on my set," Red wrote at the time.

However, police are currently investigating whether Dennis' murder is connected to any of the other recent shootings in the area. The potentially linked crimes are the shooting near Red's set, the murder of the mother of Kodak Black-affiliated rapper Syko Bob, and the murder of another, as-yet-unidentified local rapper. Furthermore, of particular interest to investigators is the similarity between the deaths of Syko Bob's mother and the unidentified rapper. In both cases, the victim was reportedly ambushed by assailants who were allegedly waiting for their victim.

In regards to Dennis' murder, the local sheriff's department is asking for anyone with information to come forward. Those with information are being asked to contact Homicide Detective John Curcio at 954-321-4212. Anonymous tips can be provided to Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 or
