Two days ago, a Dallas rapper was shot and killed on the highway, police said.

According to authorities, Melvin A. Noble, a 28-year-old also known as rapper MO3, was driving northbound around 11:55 a.m. on Interstate 35E near Clarendon Drive.

He was approached by a suspect who had gotten out of his car, police said. Noble was transported to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.
