On Wednesday morning, 20-year-old, New York rapper Pop Smoke was shot and killed in his Hollywood Hills home. At first, it was being reported as an robbery gone wrong, but now, more evidence may show that it was actually a planned attack.
Surveillance footage from outside the Hollywood Hills home shows 4 men approach the home at around 4:30 AM and sneak around back. A couple minutes pass before 3 of the 4 walk back up the side of the home to the front. The 4th apparently walked in the backdoor but no camera was trained on it. The next time you see the man, he exits through the front door of the house.
Being that the rapper posted gift bags earlier that day, with one of the tags having the address of the home on it, people assumed this could have been a robbery. But according to TMZ, people who say the surveillance video say the person inside the house, presumably the shooter, did not carry anything out.
