According to TMZ, three adults and two juveniles have been arrested in connection with the February 2020 murder of Pop Smoke.
LAPD served multiple search warrants around Los Angeles early Thursday (July 9) and law enforcement arrested those five individuals. Per TMZ, 19-year-old Cory Walker, 18-year-old Keandre D. Rogers and 21-year-old Jaquan Murphy are the three adults who were booked. Walker and Rogers have been charged with murder and Murphy has been charged with attempted murder.
Bail for the three man has been set at $1 million. The LAPD has not released information in regards to the juvenile suspects.
The NYC rapper was in Los Angeles when masked gunman broke into a rental property he was staying at on February 19 and attempted to rob him. The gunmen shot Pop twice, killing him. The investigation stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting Los Angeles County.
Pop posthumously released his debut album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon on July 3, executive produced by 50 Cent. The album is expected to land at No. 1 on the upcoming Billboard 200 chart with more than 200,000 equivalent album units earned.
