The 31-year-old rapper was shot just after 5:30 AM local time in the Chicago neighborhood of Aubrun Gresham on the city’s South Side.

According to police, a black four-door sedan – possibly a Cadillac – approached the rapper’s vehicle when an individual got out of the car, opened fire, and then fled westbound.

The rapper was shot multiple times. The female victim was struck in the arm and upper back. They were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where Cash was pronounced dead.

The woman survived, but she is believed to be in critical condition.

No one is currently in custody, and the investigation is ongoing.
