Rappers Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly could have been killed at the hands of a gunman, who was behind a recent mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida.

In his chilling writings, Ryan Christopher Palmeter listed a slew of his potential targets, including Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly, according to Rolling Stone, reports

“Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers, aka Slim Shady aka Ken Keniff, aka the white guy from D12): Stared the abyss (being ni–dly) and the abyss stared back (becoming a n****r),” he wrote.

He appeared to express his disdain for the “Slim Shady” rhymer as writing: “Walks the edge of n****r lover and honorary n****r. ... Death is to include Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers, aka Slim Shady aka Ken Keniff, aka the white guy from D12) as a valid target and he is to be killed on sight.”

Similar to Eminem, Ryan wanted MGK “to be killed on sight” and he may have been close enough to assassinate the 'Bloody Valentine' hitmaker. “Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly): Honorable n****r. To be killed on sight like Eminem because I didn’t get a shot at him up in Ohio,” so he claimed.

Neither reps for both artistes nor FBI have commented on the chilling writings.

Ryan opened fire at a Dollar General store in Jacksonville, Florida, on August 26. He shot and killed himself after he barricaded himself in an office.

Three victims in the incident, which is believed to be racially profiled, are identified as Angela Michelle Carr, 52; Anolt Joseph “AJ” Laguerre Jr., 19; and Jerrald Gallion, 29. All of them were black. The case is currently under investigation as a hate crime.
