LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rapper A$AP Rocky has been taken into custody at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with a shooting in Hollywood last year.
The performer, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was detained on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Police say the 33-year-old was wanted in connected with a Nov. 6, 2021, shooting that broke out after an argument escalated. Mayers is accused of firing a handgun at an acquaintance, who sustained a minor injury and later sought medical treatment.
Authorities say Mayers and two others fled. Mayers’ RCA Records publicist and attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
