Family, friends and fans of west coast rapper Mac Dre were trying to make sense of the rapper's violent death Tuesday as investigators in Kansas City, Mo., sifted through evidence that included a bullet-riddled van and what may be the suspect's 2003 Infiniti G36.

Dre, given namewhose given name was Andre Hicks, was killed early Monday in Kansas City, Mo. when an unknown suspect fired through the vehicle on U.S. 71, a four-lane highway running through the middle of town. Though the driver crawled to safety, Dre was thrown from the van and pronounced dead at the scene. Kansas City police reported late Tuesday that Dre died from a bullet wound. He was 34.


He was like the Beatles or Elvis, but on a smaller scale to a lot of people, said Vallejo native James Trujillo, otherwise known as Jay Tee of the rap group, N2DEEP. I've known Dre since the late 1980s. He was my biggest influence. He was a for-real superstar.

Kansas City Police Department spokesman Darin Snapp said homicide detectives are following leads and releasing few details.

There were about a dozen bullet holes (in the van), I can say that, but I can't say what kind of gun was used, Snapp said. Only one person knows that, and that way, when we catch the perpetrator, he won't be able to say, he read it in the newspaper.

Snapp said the police have some pretty good leads on it, and are questioning someone who¹s cooperating. We should know something by the end of the week.

Police linked the Infiniti to the shooting but declined to specify what the evidence was, reported Channel 9 in Kansas City. The vehicle was found with no license plates.

Dre had staged a concert in Kansas City, Kan., on Friday night and stayed in the area during the weekend.

Back in the Bay Area, despondent relatives and friends paid tribute to the pioneer rapper.
