The hip hop world is mourning a death again. Miami rapper Wavy Navy Pooh was shot and killed while driving while with his family.
The incident occurred late Friday at an intersection south of Miami, according to WSVN. Authorities reported that the 28-year-old artist (legal name Shandler Beaubien) was behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry when another person pulled up to the driver’s side and fired at least 15 shots.
It was learned that Wavey, who was shot several times while driving, died at the scene.
Florida law enforcement has unfortunately confirmed that a female passenger and Wavy’s two children – a five-year-old and an infant – were inside their vehicle when the ambush took place.
None of the passengers were harmed. It was determined that the attack clearly targeted the Wavy Navy Pooh.

“An unknown subject in a four-door Lexus, a gray Lexus, approached him from the driver’s side, opened fire and then fled westbound on 152nd Street,” Miami-Dade Police detective Alvaro Zabaleta told the outlet.
“On the front seat, there was a one-year-old child in a car seat that easily could have been struck by gunfire and taken his life.”
