LIBERTY CITY (CBS4) - Family and friends say a man killed in Liberty City Monday night was popular local rapper Robert Labranche who went by the name "Bizzle."

Police said he was killed outside a Liberty City car wash abound 8 p.m. Monday at 770 NW 54th St.   Two of his children were in the car just feet away when he was murdered.   Neither child was hurt, and police do not believe the children, a girl and boy younger than 10, witnessed the shooting.

Rod Parker described himself as a friend, but said this is a loss for the whole community,  "You can see it man he's loved everywhere, everywhere. He's a lovable guy. It happened in front of his kids it's a tragedy it's sad, it's real sad," said Parker.

The street quickly filled with hundreds of people all sobbing.  At one point police moved the crowd back after family members rushed past the crime tape  toward the body.

As of Monday night no one was in custody for the murder.

"All I ask is whoever did it, they gotta turn themselves in," said Parker.

Labranche is not associated with Mark J. Felder, another rapper who goes by the name "Bizzle."

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
