LA home that rapper Pop Smoke was murdered in sells for millions
While it might have a grizzly history due to the murder of its previous occupant, the 4-bedroom LA home that Pop Smoke was shot in will soon be welcoming its new owner.
The home was listed for $2,950,000 in July, and the house is now in escrow. This means the seller, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp and her husband Edwin Arroyave , has accepted an offer from a prospective buyer.
Mellancamp and Arroyave immediately sent their condolences to Pop Smoke and his family following news of the murder earlier this year, though they stated they were not aware of any of the details regarding the murder.
“Early this am we were informed by a 3rd party leasing and management company overseeing a rental home we own in Los Angeles that a shooting had taken place at the property.
“Foremost, we would like to extend our prayers and condolences to the family and loved ones affected by this tragic loss of life,” Mellencamp at the time of the incident.
Four people have been charged with murdering the rapper.
Five people have since been charged for the crime, with Corey Walker, 19, and Keandre Rodgers, 18, both charged with robbery and murder.
Two males, aged 15 and 17, who can’t be named because of their age, face the same charges.
A fifth man was also arrested, although it was unclear at the time on what charge.
The 20-year-old rapper was shot around 4 a.m. on February 19 inside the rental home in the Hollywood Hills. City police officers found him with several gunshot wounds after responding to a 911 call. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he later died.
