Vlogger Zack Stone was known for chronicling the often violent world of Chicago rap as Zack TV.
That violence ended his life late last night.
Stone was shot and killed in his jeep on Chicago's south loop at 1:30 AM. He had just left a rap concert when gunmen opened fire, hitting him in the head and neck. His vehicle then jumped a curb and hit a light pole. The 30-year-old was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he later died
There have been some reports that he was conducting a street interview when he was shot.
"I’m hearing stories like they may have been mad at him because he did interviews with certain rappers," friend Phor Robinson said. "But that’s not his fault for him doing his job. I don’t know why anyone would attack Zack and shoot him. He’s not that type. He shows love to everybody in Chicago. "I don’t know if they was personally shooting at him, or if it was somebody he was with. I don’t know what it was. All I know is my friend is gone.””

Damn bruh, I hate the fact that Zack TV is dead & gone, he really held it down for Chicago. His death really a reality check for bloggers who risking their life doing interviews.
