DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas-based rapper Melvin Noble a.k.a. Mo3 has died after being shot by a suspect who chased him on foot on I-35E Wednesday, sources close to the investigation told CBS 11 News.

Police said the incident began as the victim was traveling on northbound I-35E at Clarendon Drive just before 12 p.m. A suspect got out of a vehicle armed with a gun and began approaching the victim’s vehicle, according to police. Police did not say if the vehicles had been stopped.

Police said the victim, who sources identified as 28-year-old Noble, also got out of his vehicle and began running southbound on the freeway. The suspect chased the victim and fired multiple rounds at him, striking the victim at least once, police said.

According to police, an innocent bystander who was inside his vehicle was also struck by the gunfire.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where sources said Noble was pronounced dead.

Police said the innocent bystander was treated for apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made as police continue to investigate.

However, sources confirmed to Urban Islandz and later TMZ that the star, whose real name is Melvin Noble, had been gunned down in broad daylight.

He was driving on a busy freeway when a car pulled up next to him and allegedly sprayed his vehicle with bullets, sources said.

The rapper’s car then reportedly crashed into a concrete barrier before coming to a halt.

He is then believed to have ran from the vehicle before the gunman followed on foot and opened fire – shooting Noble in the back of the head.

Another motorist was hit by a stray bullet and was rushed to hospital and is in a stable condition.

Graphic videos have circulated online appearing to show a man lying on his back while another person performs CPR on him – although it’s unclear if that is the rapper or the bystander.

Mo3 survived being shot in the head in December last year.

Mo3 has been long associated with Boosie Badazz’s Bad Azz Music label.

No arrests have been made as police continue to investigate.
