Internet Theories About Pop Smoke’s Death Creating Further Confusion Around The Case
The topic of Pop Smoke’s death keeps getting more confusing. Back in February, the star was found dead in his rented apartment in Hollywood Hills. The up and coming musician was at the forefront of the Brooklyn drill movement.
He had been actively paving the way for the movement with hits like ‘Welcome To The Party” and “Dior.” Less than two weeks before his death, he released his second mixtapes titled Meet The Woo 2.
The causes behind the death of a the20-year-old artist is still under investigation by the Los Angeles police. However, internet sleuths have contributed and come up with some theories that escalate the confusion around the case. Here’s what they think.
Fans And Sleuths Have A Theory That Pop Smoke Was Killed!
According to them, on Wednesday, February 19th, four hooded individuals were spotted near Pop Smoke’s Hollywood Hill house, one with a gun. They were located entering Pop Smoke’s place where they presumably shot the star fatally and then escaped the scene of the crime. This supposedly happened around 4.30 in the morning. Pop Smoke was taken to a hospital shortly after, where he died.
Pop Smoke’s friends then called the police, informing that their friend had been shot. There were several other people in the house, but only Pop Smoke had been shot. The gun bearer had possibly only found Pop Smoke on the spot. All the other residents were detained but were let go afterward.
