18-Year-Old Man Confesses To Fatally Shooting Pop Smoke05/16/2023
An 18-year-old man has confessed to fatally shooting late rapper Pop Smoke during a home invasion in 2020.
The court has withheld the man’s identity as he was a juvenile at the time of the incident. The man also confessed to other charges for home invasion robbery.
He was charged in juvenile court and is expected to be held in a state juvenile facility until he is 25 years old.
Earlier this year, a 20-year-old man had pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in this same case. As he was a 17-year-old minor at the time of the 2020 shooting, the man also faced juvenile court in Inglewood,= and was sentenced to four years and two months in a juvenile facility.
Five people were arrested in July 2020, nearly five months after they had broken into the Los Angeles Airbnb where Pop Smoke was temporarily staying.
Two men, Keandre Rodgers and Corey Walker, are still facing murder charges in the case and could face the death penalty if convicted.
