Melvin Noble, the 28-year-old rapper, also known as Mo3, was killed in the brutal attack around noon on the northbound Interstate 34, stated by the Dallas Police Department.
Police state that the shooting suspect whose description includes being a Black male got out of his dark sedan armed with a gun and approached Noble, who got out of his stopped car and started running south on the highway.
The suspect went after Mo3, shooting multiple times and striking him. The rapper was brought to a local hospital where he passed away from his injuries, according to the police report.
The suspect also shot an innocent male bystander, who was in another car. The second victim was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were described as not life-threatening.
Mo3, native to Dallas, father of three, was described as the “gang member turned rapper” to Flaunt magazine. His music told the story of living with “poverty and struggling.” His most notable song is “Errybody (Remix) that dropped in 2019, a collab with Boosie Badazz.
Boosie Badazz tweeted about the death of his friend Wednesday, writing, “I'M LOST FOR WORDS #tip MY BOY “MO3 SEE U WHEN I GET THERE.”
Mo3’s last album, “BadAzz Mo3,” dropped in February. He shared a snippet of his sold-out show in Indianapolis on his social media pages the day before he died. He captioned his posts, “All Promoters Book Mo3 Now Its Lit #SoldOutShows.🔥🔥🔥.”
Police do not have a motive for the shooting. Mo3 told Flaunt Magazine he believed successful artists become targets.
“That's how it’s always been. Security or no security, you’re always targeted,” he said. “Your level of success makes you a target. You have people looking at you who are less fortunate, so you’re automatically a target.”
The suspect has not been found.
