In the footage captured at the time of his death, Rylo Huncho was singing and dancing while holding a pistol equipped with a green laser light.

Not paying attention, he deactivates the weapon’s safety and directs it towards his head. A single gunshot is heard and then his body collapses to the ground. The camera then falls to the ground immediately after.
