VladTV is reporting the untimely passing of Hellabandz, a Chicago rapper best known to the mass media for a short-winded relationship with Blac Chyna not too long ago. The 18-year old was viewed as a rising talent in by his Chicago contemporaries, of which Lil Durk is noted to have taken a keen interest in his progress in recent times. It was Lil Durk who ultimately confirmed his death by way of a Tweet. "Rip to my dawg love you 4ever hella Bandz," he wrote yesterday afternoon.

The incident took at Cameo nightclub in Miami, Florida. As NBC Miami would go on to report, Hella wasn't the only person bludgeoned in the attack, as two other individuals were also reported as injured - one was escorted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition, the other is believed to be in good sorts.

"A potential subject vehicle was located not far from the scene. While another fled. A pursuit ensued," The Miami Beach Police Department said in a statement. "Our officer witnessed an occupant display a firearm from within the vehicle and later lost sight of that vehicle. A third vehicle was located near 83 Street and Collins Avenue which also fled."

The search for the assailants is ongoing. A convoy of police vehicles that were called to the scene in pursuit of the suspects, ended in a collision. Two of the police-issue vehicles smashed into one another near 91st Street and Harding Avenue. One of the officers involved in the mishap is said to be suffering from minor injuries caused by sudden impact. He is however expected to make a full recovery in the coming days.
