Los Angeles-based rapper Indian Red Boy was ambushed and shot dead in front of horrified viewers while doing an Instagram Live chat.

The rapper, whose real name is Zerail Dijon Rivera, was sitting in a car doing the live stream with social media influencer Kapone when he was shot last Thursday, Hawthorne Police Department said.

Police responded to calls of a shooting at a gated apartment complex, where they found the 21-year-old slumped forward in the front seat of a car parked at the back of the building.

The rapper had multiple gunshot wounds to the head and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

In an unusual move, Hawthorne Police included a link to the Instagram Live video in their press release, in the hope that someone may be able to help identify who was involved.

The video captures at least 12 shots being fired, The Sun reports.

Rivera was talking to his friend Kapone online when the shots rang out.

Kapone can be heard saying, “What the f***? Bro, what the f***? Where you at?”

Rivera can then be seen saying “get help” before whispering, “I’m in Hawthorne.”

The camera then drops and the livestream ends.
