Rapper Swagg Huncho, of the rap trio 3 Problems, was shot and killed in St. Louis last Sunday (Dec. 13). He was 18 years old at the time of his death.

According to Riverfront Times, Huncho, whose real name is James Johnson Jr., was shot twice in the head. His deceased body was found by authorities in the JeffVanderLou neighborhood of the city around 10AM ET.

The trio was beginning to gain notoriety outside of their St. Louis borders this summer being profiled in Rolling Stone magazine and amassing a huge following with their YouTube videos that they pushed hard on social media.

The groups three members were cousins, Johnson, Taylor Merriweather (Lil Tay), and Terrell Brown Jr. (Relly Rell). The group faced tragedy earlier this year when Brown plead guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to a decade in prison.

According to various reports police have no suspects at this time.

We want to send our heartfelt condolences to Johnson's family and the rest of the members of 3 Problems.
