Dublin police confirmed the identity of the victim, who was also known as Alexander Mark Antonyyo. He lived in San Francisco.
His label — Highway 420 Productions — took to Instagram to announce ‘Lil Yase’ death to his fans.
“We appreciate all the love and support,” the label posted. “Yase loved his fans, he worked every day for y’all.”
Investigators said officers responded to a call at 1 a.m. Saturday from Valley Care Medical Center in Pleasanton reporting a victim being treated for multiple gunshot wounds.
Antonyyo was transported via ambulance to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley where he later succumbed to his injuries.
