NEW YORK — Musician Nick Blixky was found fatally shot on a Brooklyn street Sunday night, the NYPD confirmed early Monday.

Officers responded to a 911 call about a man who had been shot near the intersection of Winthrop Street and Rogers Avenue in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night.

When they arrived at the scene, officers found the 21-year-old Brooklyn native, whose real name is Nickalus Thompson, unconscious and unresponsive with gunshot wounds to his torso and backside, police said.

EMS responded to the scene and rushed the rapper to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing, authorities said.

According to his Instagram , Blixky was set to release his first mixtape, "Different Timin," in just a few weeks on June 3.

The artists' management team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
