Hundreds of XXXTentacion fans gathered around Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles for a tribute for the late rapper.
Some fans were risking their lives by jumping off of buildings into crowds of people, scaling buildings, climbing on top of vehicles, and swarming the streets and sidewalks.
The crowd began forming around 8 PM, but as it grew so did the chaos. Multiple news crews and L.A. County Sheriff’s department helicopters flew above. Officers in riot gear also descended upon the crowd.
However, enforcement gained control of the situation. Once people began throwing rocks, they fired rubber bullets and pepper bullets into the crowd.
