The world is still morning the death of Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke. 

Earlier this week, we reported that Pop was gunned down in his Hollywood Hills home during a home invasion. Today, (Feb. 21st) the autopsy report gave an exact determination of the rapper’s death. 

According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, his cause of death was a fatal shot to the chest/torso area. It is has been reported in XXL that the 20-year-old died at the hospital and that his body has been released to his family. 

As of right now, none of the four suspects that were seen breaking into the home have been arrested. The LAPD is investigating his murder as a targeted hit and not as a random robbery. 

We will continue to keep Pop Smoke’s family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.
