Rapper A$AP Rocky arrested in Los Angeles in connection with 2021 shooting


The American artist was detained on Wednesday as he returned from vacation in Barbados. This arrest is linked to a shooting in which the rapper is suspected of being involved.

Rapper A$AP Rocky was taken into custody this Wednesday morning at Los Angeles International Airport, as reported by many American media. The artist was arrested and handcuffed as he returned to the United States on a private flight after vacationing in Barbados alongside his girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

Los Angeles police officers then confirmed the information in a press release where they notably stated that this arrest would be linked to a shooting that occurred in 2021 in which the rapper was allegedly involved.

An ongoing investigation

A$AP Rocky, who is expecting her first child with Rihanna, is being investigated for a shooting, which was never disclosed to the public. This incident is said to have occurred in Los Angeles, near Vista Del Mar and Selma Avenue, on November 6, 2021, as the statement from the Los Angeles police.

The victim, who survived the shooting, told authorities that the rapper and two other men approached her with a handgun. According to his statements, A$AP Rocky would have shot him three or four times, and a bullet would have grazed his hand.

This isn’t the first time the rapper has run into the law. In 2019, A$AP Rocky claimed he was charged with attempted murder when he was 16, which landed him in jail on Rikers Island.

That same year, the artist was convicted of assault in Sweden after a video emerged showing A$AP Rocky and his crew having a run-in with locals while on tour.
