Pop Smoke, an up and coming rapper, has been shot and killed this morning in what appears to be a home invasion robbery.
The rapper was at a home in the Hollywood Hills at around 4:30am when two men wearing hoodies and masks broke into a house. The 2 men fired multiple shots, striking and critically wounding Pop Smoke. They later fled on foot.
Pop Smoke was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead. The suspects have not been caught nor identified. It's unclear if Pop Smoke knew the shooters. One man was placed in handcuffs but cops determined he was not involved and was released. He was 20.
