According to a later tweet from the department, Walker, Rodgers and the two juvenile suspects have been booked for murder, while Murphy was booked for attempted murder. The bail for all three adult suspects is currently set at $1,000,000.

As reported by REVOLT, all five suspects were arrested early Thursday morning (July 9) in Los Angeles.
“[The] search and arrest warrants were served at several locations in Los Angeles and the warrants were all related to the February 19 murder of Bashar Jackson,” a statement from the LAPD, provided to XXL, read.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding Pop’s death to contacted the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division investigators or leave an anonymous tip via LA Crime Stoppers.
The arrests arrived five months after Pop was fatally shot in what appeared to be a home invasion. The 20-year-old rapper was staying at a rental home in Hollywood Hills, CA, when four masked individuals entered his home around 4:30 in the morning. Pop was struck with two bullets and was pronounced dead at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.
Rest in peace, Pop Smoke. See tweets about the arrests from the LAPD below.
