Shigaraki's fatal blow to Bakugo's chest is the easy answer to the question of how he died. His heart was blown into pieces and his lifeless body was seen in the final panels with a hole punctured through his chest.

However, there are various possible reasons that led to ensure his death. First, Shigaraki punctured his chest and blew a hole in his heart with the intention of ending Bakugo entirely, giving the villain an edge against Izuku.

Second is the orbs of condensed nitroglycerin which Bakugo used himself. It possible became both his strength and weakness in the fight against Shigaraki. The manga itself indicated that Bakugo didn't know of any possible issues that could affect his fight.

The orbs of condensed nitroglycerin are used by Bakugo for his explosions which circulate throughout his body. With the blow from Shigaraki, these explosions may have added to the damage causing Bakugo's heart to shatter and explode into pieces.
