Roc of the Detroit rap crew Doughboyz Cashout was murdered Monday afternoon in his hometown.
According to various reports online, including CBS Detroit, Doughboy Roc, a member of the Detroit rap crew Doughboyz Cashout, was shot and killed Monday afternoon on the west side of his hometown. He was 29 year young.
Roc was reportedly shot to death around 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon while sitting inside a white Hyundai at Stoepel Street and Westfield Avenue, near I-96 and Livernois Avenue. He was reportedly shot in the right ear and right shoulder, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police haven't officially confirmed the victim’s identity just yet, but WWJ News radio 950’s Charlie Langton has learned that the man is indeed Doughboy Roc.
Family, friends, and neighbors all gathered together around the scene on Monday afternoon, expressing their sadness and shock about the news. “Everybody was so surprised,” one local resident told WWJ Newsradio 950. “They couldn’t believe that someone they knew from the neighborhood, who also is famous and young, had been found dead in his car.”
Unfortunately, investigators don’t have any information about a suspect at this time, but they’re reportedly still looking into it obviously.
"I can't believe I'm talking about it, because it has destroyed us," said Tarence Goudy, Roc’s uncle. "It literally is destroying us. He can't be replaced.” “He loved Detroit," Goudy said. "He loved the people. He loved even being around young fans, and not just the fans, but people. That's just who he was. He always talked about family," Goudy added. "Each album he had, family was in it. He loved his son, and he always said, 'I do it for me son.'"
Roc had just released his latest mixtape Roc Vs Balboa back on September 15. It featured fellow Doughboyz Cashout members Payroll Giovanni, Big Quis, HBK and Doughboy Dre as well as Band Gang Paid Will.
Many fans have already taken to social media to express their condolences to the family of Roc’s during this difficult time. Check out some of those tweets & posts (below).
