    Person of Interest Named as Fans Mourn XXXTentacion

    Police have named a person of interest in the murder of XXXTentacion. NBC 6 Reporter Stephanie Bertini explains.

    Seven months after XXXTentacion was killed, the rapper's son has been born.

    Jenesis Sanchez, XXXTentacion's girlfriend, gave birth Saturday to baby boy Gekyume Onfroy. The birth was announced Saturday evening by XXXTentacion's mother Cleopatra Bernard.

    Gekyume's name is derived from a word the rapper created prior to his passing. His family defined it as meaning "a different state" or "next universe of thought."

    The 20-year-old rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was fatally shot in June in Florida in what authorities called a robbery attempt. XXXTentacion's sophomore album debuted No. 1 on the Billboard charts last March. In December, a posthumous album also reached No. 1.
