Authorities have officially charged four suspects, two adults and two teens, with the murder of Pop Smoke.
Last week it was announced that the Los Angeles Police Department made five arrests in Pop Smoke’s murder. Today, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced the charges and identified the two adults as 19-year-old Corey Walker and 18-year-old Keandre Rodgers. The juvenile suspects, ages 15 and 17, were not identified because they are minors, and there was no immediate word as to why authorities declined to charge the fifth suspect.
Officials say Walker and Rodgers are eligible for the death penalty being that the murder occurred during the commission of a robbery and a burglary. The complaint also alleges gang and gun allegations, according to the district attorney’s office.
Walker and Rodgers are expected to be arraigned today
