According to the police report, obtained by The Blast, Hitmaka (real name Christian Ward) and his girlfriend are in "a dating relationship" and "suspect and victim became involved in a verbal dispute. The suspect pistol-whipped victim (numerous times) resulting in verifiable injuries."

You may recall Yung Berg was kicked off Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood for assaulting his then-girlfriend Masika.

Los Angeles is notorious for going easy on celebrities accused of domestic violence. Singers and rappers are rarely sent to prison for inflicting injuries on wives, girlfriends or baby mamas.

On the night he died, rapper Pop Smoke held a private party at the $2.5 million home he leased from Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp.

The 20-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper, real name Bashar Jackson, had signed the lease a month before he was gunned down inside the house by four masked home invaders at 4:29 a.m. on Feb. 19.

10 days after his death, the LAPD have hit a roadblock, unable to identify the four suspects seen on surveillance video entering the house on the 2000 block of Hercules Drive in Los Angeles.

About 20 people attended a party at the home to celebrate Pop Smoke's recent album release. But detectives say they have no leads due to a lack of witnesses.

Law enforcement tell TMZ that people are unwilling to talk about what they saw.

The potential witnesses cops have spoken to keep changing their stories, or telling outright lies. To make matters worse, cops wasted precious hours viewing videos online that turned out to have no connection to the case.

One Instagram blog with thousands of followers posted surveillance footage that purportedly showed the shooting inside the house. But the video turned out to be footage from a deadly home invasion in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Cops are having trouble coming up with a motive for the murder. Adding to their frustration, the victim lived in Brooklyn, but spent time on the West Coast. Which means cops have had to spend extra time tracking down witnesses who returned to the East Coast.

Pop Smoke was not a household name when he died, but his murder boosted sales of his music, including his 2019 breakout hit "Welcome to the Party."

For two days after his death, Hercules Drive was lined with TV trucks and fans paying tribute to the drill rapper.

When a reporter visited on Friday afternoon, the street was all but empty, except for two construction workers painting a house nearby.

"It was impossible for a few days," one neighbor told reporter Tarpley Hitt, of theDailyBeast.com. "But now it seems weirdly normal."

While Hitt canvased the neighborhood looking for witnesses, three young girls drove up to the cream colored house, taking pictures of the small shrine that included flowers and a crumpled dollar bill.

"We love him," one of the girls told Hitt. "We only heard about him when he died, from the Internet."

A Los Angeles police union will not defend a LAPD cop who was caught fondling a dead woman's breasts.

On Dec. 4, the union that represents LAPD officers released a statement, saying the union "will not defend an officer accused of fondling the breasts of a dead woman."

The cop was placed on leave after video footage from his body camera showed him abusing a corpse. The footage was viewed during a random check of body cameras.

According to CBS local affiliate KCAL9 News, nearly two weeks ago, the accused cop and his partner, both male, responded to a 911 call that a dead body was found inside of a residence.

The officers confirmed the woman was deceased and one cop left the residence to retrieve paperwork from a patrol car.

While his partner was outside, the accused cop turned off his body cam and then “inappropriately touched the woman's body," LAPD officials confirmed.

The cop was caught because body cameras have a two-minute buffer, meaning they capture two minutes of footage before the devices are activated.

According to KCAL9, the officer turned in his body camera at the end of his shift. The camera was then stored with thousands of other cameras.

The officer in charge of checking video footage from the cameras randomly picked up a camera off the shelf and viewed its content.

The LAPD is investigating vandalism at LeBron James' home as a hate crime. Someone spray painted "ni--er" on the gate leading to James $20.9 million Brentwood, Calif. mansion on Tuesday.

Police are reviewing video surveillance footage from neighboring homes to identify the vandals. James was not home at the time of the incident, according to the NY Daily News.

Christopher Dorner confirmed dead

The biggest manhunt in Southern California history ended in a blaze of glory Tuesday night -- just as Christopher Dorner had predicted in his online manifesto.

Dorner, 33, went on a shooting rampage to seek revenge for what he believed was his wrongful termination from the LAPD in 2008. On Monday Dorner was officially charged (in absentia) with the deaths of 2 LAPD officers and the attempted murders of 2 other officers.

After eluding a joint task force of law enforcement officers across California for a week, Dorner was spotted by a state Fish and Wildlife officer as he drove a stolen truck near Big Bear, California Tuesday. Dorner and the officer exchanged gunfire and Dorner crashed the pickup truck.

The former Navy veteran then abandoned the stolen truck and ran into the nearby woods. He took refuge in an empty rental cabin which was quickly surrounded by San Bernardino officers. A fierce gun battle erupted and two San Bernardino County officers were hit as Dorner attempted to escape out of the back of the cabin.

One officer later died of his injuries and a 2nd officer was in surgery but expected to survive. SWAT officers returned fire and lobbed tear gas canisters into the wooden structure, pushing Dorner back inside.

According to a law enforcement source, police had broken down windows, fired tear gas into the cabin and blasted over a loud speaker urging Dorner to surrender. When they got no response, police deployed a vehicle to rip down the walls of the cabin "one by one, like peeling an onion," a law enforcement official said.

By the time they got to the last wall, authorities heard a single gunshot, the source said. Then flames began to spread through the structure, and gunshots, probably set off by the fire, were heard. Source

LAPD officials confirmed Dorner's charred body was pulled out of the burned cabin tonight, a source told the LA Times.

Police suspect Dorner shot himself when he was cornered and trapped inside the cabin. It isn't clear if the tear gas canisters ignited the flames that totally consumed the cabin, or if Dorner set the fire himself.

Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements about another LAPD officer.

In his angry 11-page manifesto posted to Facebook, Dorner named targets within the LAPD and he promised to use "every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training I've been given" to bring "warfare" to LAPD officers and their families.

At the peak of the intense manhunt for Dorner, officials had placed 50 LAPD officers and their families under police protection.

Among Dorner's first victims were the daughter of a former LAPD captain and her fiance, who were shot to death as they sat in their car near their home Sunday night.
