​Local rapper JP (Tha Mex) died on Sunday morning. JP -- whose real name was John P. Garcia -- was shot and killed on Cesar Chavez and Mercier, around 4AM. According to Fox 4 KC, witnesses said that following the gunshots, the suspect vehicle raced down a dead end street and ripped through a nearby fence to escape. Police are looking for a white Ford Crown Victoria with Kansas plates, and front end damage. 

Garcia had just cut a music video for a track from his debut album, In My City, with Rich the Factor and Lil Scrappy last week. Watch it after the jump.
