Joven Pineda Deala was shot in the head early Tuesday in the Philippines.
*The half-brother of Philippine-born rapper apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas was fatally shot early Tuesday in their northern hometown of Angeles City, reports the Associated Press.
Chief Inspector Wilfredo Paulo said Joven Pineda Deala was shot in the head as he and his girlfriend were eating in his car that was parked outside the woman's home. He says the gunman and his accomplice escaped on foot. Deala, 21, died while being rushed to the hospital.
Paulo says the attack appeared to be without provocation and investigators are searching for a possible motive.
Reports say apl.de.ap, whose real name is Allan Pineda Lindo, will attend his half-brother's funeral. No date has been set.
