How did pop die? Pop Smoke, a 20-year-old American rapper, was killed by a 15-year-old during a home invasion robbery in February 2020, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
According to the New York Daily News, LAPD Det. Carlos Camacho said the teen was one of five people arrested in connection with the rapper’s death, which happened during a home invasion.
On Feb. 19, 2020, they raided Pop Smoke’s rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills, attempting to steal his Cuban link chain but only getting away with the diamond-studded watch, which they later resold for $2,000, according to Canacho.
He also confirmed that during a recorded interview, the unidentified 15-year-old defendant confessed to pulling the trigger.
“After they got into a confrontation, the teen confessed to shooting the victim three times.
“He said he shot him in the back of the head. He said that when they entered the house, the deceased was naked in the tub.
“At first, Pop began to obey. The rapper fought back, but the robbers rushed him and pistol-whipped him until the 15-year-old shot him,” he said.
