Wavy Navy Pooh, a Miami-based rapper, died on Friday, according to his record company. The cause of his death has yet to be revealed. Pierre “Pee” Thomas of Quality Control also commented on Instagram about Wavy Navy Pooh’s death, but did not elaborate on how he died.
According to unidentified law enforcement officials, Wavy, whose actual name was Shandler Beaubien, died after being shot while driving a car near Zoo Miami. The Miami-Dade Police Department confirmed a fatal gunshot near the zoo on Friday, but did not immediately release the victim’s identify. MDPD has been contacted by Newsweek for comment.
Quality Control Music, the 25-year-old rapper’s record company, announced Beaubien’s death on Instagram, sharing a photo of him with the caption “Rest in Peace.” The rapper’s cause of death was not mentioned by the record label.
Beaubien put his heart and soul into his music. He believed in giving back to his community as well as sharing his hardships through his music. Your life was a blessing and will never be forgotten.
On Friday, Miami-Dade police verified that a deadly gunshot had occurred, and that the victim was driving a Toyota Camry. A five-year-old and a one-year-old toddler, as well as an adult woman, were also in the automobile. The woman and her children were not harmed in any way.
Alvaro Zabaleta, MDPD Public Information Officer, told CBS Miami: “Once officers arrived is when they discovered in a Toyota 4-door that the driver was suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Once fire rescue responded, they were able to pronounce the driver deceased here on the scene.”
At the entrance to the Deerwood subdivision, at the intersection of Southwest 152nd Street and 127th Avenue, the incident occurred. Zoo Miami is directly across the street from that entrance. The shots were allegedly fired from a grey Lexus, according to police.
