The entertainment industry is currently reeling at the gruesome murder of fast-rising 20-year-old rapper, Pop Smoke.
According to reports from Daily Mail, the music star was shot dead in what seemed to be a home invasion or robbery attack by two masked men at his home in Hollywood Hills.
It was gathered that fire was opened on the music star who was at home at around 4:30am on Wednesday, February, 19, 2020. It was said that the rapper was shot by the men who later fled on foot, leaving the entertainer in a critical condition.
After the supposed robbers fled, Pop Smoke was said to have been taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead.
No suspect has been apprehended regarding the tragedy but one man was arrested and later released after he was found to have no involvement in it.
This is terrible news. RIP to Pop Smoke.
