by at . Comments

Rapper Montae Talbert, better known as M-Bone of the hip hop group Cali Swag District, was killed in a shooting Sunday night in the Inglewood area of L.A.

Police say it's too soon to say if M Bone was targeted or if it was a random act of violence, but he was shot in the head as he sat in a car around 10:30 p.m.

Lt. James Madie of the Inglewood Police Department said the following: "We have identified the victim as Mante Ray Talbert. He was born July 17, 1988."

"Reports that it was a random shooting are unconfirmed at this time."

R.I.P., M-Bone (1988-2011).

"Officers are going through lots of information, sorting out good information from bogus information. Honestly, we are overwhelmed at this time."

“It is still early in the investigation, and we have been getting conflicting statements about what happened. So far, we do not think that anybody witnessed the actual shooting, and we could be looking for a red or white vehicle."

“We will be working the case hard today.”

Detectives on the scene were checking to see if any cameras from stores across the street had caught anything on tape that might help them.

A resident who lived behind the liquor store M-Bone was parked at before he was shot twice in the head said, “I heard two shots like a popping noise then a car screeching away,  but nobody wants to get involved with what happened.”

Talbert was found slumped over the steering wheel in the driver’s seat of his car and police have not ruled-out that he might have known the shooter.

The incident took place at 416 N. La Brea Boulevard in Inglewood.

Cali Swag District's "Teach Me How to Dougie" hit number 28 on the Billboard charts in 2010, and established the dance as a hip hop staple.
