Minutes before Tampa rapper Rollie Bands was shot and killed, he invited his killers to his home.
Bands sent a social media challenge to his killers on Instagram.
"A lot of these n***as [know] where I live at [for real]. I sleep in peace. If a ni**a want smoke I'm at my crib in 5 mins."
The killers pulled up 5 minutes later and opened fire.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call of a man down at 3:30 p.m. Friday, July 22.
Deputies found the aspiring rapper laying face down in the parking lot of the IQ Apartments on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.
Bands was suffering from a single gunshot wound and later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Police say the unknown assailants fled the scene before deputies arrived.
Twitter users reacted to another senseless murder of a young man in the prime of his life.
One user wrote: "Internet got the youth all messed up. They post, snap, tweet or Facebook every single move they make. Always looking for validation."
Another person wrote: "people that hate you pay more attention to you than those who love you. y’all gotta be careful over these apps. everything ain’t always a joke."
A third person tweeted: "So basically he got exactly what he asked for. Nothing to see here folks. Hope his family doesn't gotta throw a fish fry to bury him."
