A man who apparently had been making a music video was shot and killed in the parking lot of a La Marque gas station, according to the police.

The shooting took place just after 9 p.m. Sunday at the Circle T Quick Stop, 1010 Lake Road, police disclosed.

Responding officers found an unidentified man dead in the parking lot of the gas station, according to a news release.

Detectives are reviewing security video and conducting interviews with witnesses, according to the department.

Investigators believe the man was filming a music video in the parking lot when he was shot, according to a department statement.

Over the past years, police have connected violence across the county to feuds between rival rap crews, groups of mostly young people who form gang-like cliques seemingly to start music careers, reports states.

Members of the groups frequently post videos, rapping about women, disputes, money and drugs, on websites such as YouTube, police officials said last year, police states.

Many of their violent outbursts began during exchanges on other social media sites, such as Facebook and Snapchat, officials said.

Police are yet to release any information about possible suspects, reports states.
