5 suspects were arrested in the February murder of Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the arrests of 3 adults and 2 juveniles on Thursday.
The 5 were booked into jail and are undergoing interrogations.
The 20-year-old rapper, real name Bashar Jackson, was gunned down during a home invasion at his rental property in the Hollywood Hills on Feb. 19.
Jackson grew up in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, NY, where he attended church and sang in the choir as a youth.
When he was 15 he won a scholarship to play basketball at a Philadelphia prep school, but he only stayed for a brief period.
Jackson began his recording career in 2018 with his breakout hit "Welcome to the Party," a gangsta anthem that featured Nicki Minaj on the remix.
In a Genius interview, he explained the origin of his stage name Pop Smoke is a combination of Poppa (a nickname given to him by his Panamanian grandmother) and Smoke, a nickname given to him by friends.
His debut studio album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, was posthumously released on July 3.
