Arrests Have Been Made in the Case of Pop Smoke's Murder: Remembering a Rising Star

The budding 19-year-old "Brooklyn Drill" rapper was killed during a home robbery at his L.A. home in February.

Arrests have finally been made in the case of budding Brooklyn drill rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed during a home invasion in February.

The Los Angeles police responded to an emergency call at 4:20 AM on February 19th at a home in the Hollywood Hills after "masked gunmen" broke into the house the rapper was renting.
