Brooklyn’s latest star, PopSmoke, was unfortunately killed this morning at the age of 20 during a home invasion to his Hollywood home.
“We are devastated by the unexpected and tragic loss of Pop Smoke. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans, as we mourn this loss together,” said Republic Records.
No suspects have been identified in the shooting. People who were present in the home were temporarily detained and then released according to L.A. Police.
