According to reports, the 18-year-old rapper, whose real name is James Johnson Jr., was shot in the head twice, and was found dead by authorities in the JeffVanderLou neighborhood. The person who murdered him has not been identified at this time.

Swagg Huncho came out of Ferguson, and was made famous through his music with his group that was not backed by any major label.

The trio were featured in Rolling Stone and the Riverfront Times earlier this year, with one of their members. Relly Rell, having received a 10-year prison sentence for second-degree murder.
