Young A Stunnin, a Montreal rapper signed to 100 Family Records, was killed in a downtown shooting on Tuesday (September 20). He was 21.

The artist born Adam Jean-Philippe was one of three people shot near the Bell Centre, at the intersection of Rue Saint-Antoine Ouest and Rue de la Montagne, just before 8 p.m. ET.

According to a TVA report, the victims were driving near the intersection when nearly a dozen rounds of gunfire were shot from another vehicle. Two victims were taken to hospital, one having suffered non-life-threatening injuries and the other in critical condition, while Jean-Philippe was declared dead at the scene.

Hailing from the neighbourhood of Little Burgundy, Jean-Philippe released a handful of singles including "New Day" and "Old Head," as well as collaboration with labelmates Busy Bro$, "Murk."

The shooting remains under investigation by Montreal police. No arrests were made the night of the incident.
