Police have released the names of three of the five suspects arrested in the killing of rapper Pop Smoke and say they are gang members who are also responsible for a fatal shooting at the Rose Bowl last year.
The suspects are identified as Corey Walker, 19, of Los Angeles; Jaquan Murphy, 21, of Los Angeles; and Keandre D. Rodgers, 18, of Los Angeles. The other two are juveniles and their names were not released.
The 20-year-old New York rapper, whose legal name is Bashar Barakah Jackson, was killed Feb. 19 at a home in the Hollywood Hills.
Investigators say the suspects entered the rented home around 4 a.m., fatally shot Pop Smoke and robbed the house.
They were described as members of a Los Angeles street gang who are also linked to the murder of Kamryn Stone, 18, at the Rose Bowl parking lot in Pasadena on Sept. 14, 2019.
At the time, that incident was described as occurring after a fight. A 51-year-old Los Angeles man was also wounded in the shooting.
The adult suspects were arrested Thursday and are being held on $1 million bail.
