The house where Pop Smoke was murdered
Death House in Los Angeles, California
This is the house where Pop Smoke was shot dead.
It is located at 2033 Hercules Drive in Los Angeles, California.
The rapper, whose real name was Bashar Jackson, was murdered during a home invasion at this address in the early hours of February 19th, 2020.
Pop Smoke did not own the property. Instead, he was renting it from Airbnb. At the time of the shooting, it was owned by "The Real Housewives" TV star Teddi Mellencamp.
On February 18th, Jackson and his friend, Michael Durodola (Mike Dee), took a number of Instagram photographs of themselves posing beside the swimming pool and a Range Rover in the driveway.
The rap star also shared a picture of a package that had been sent to him by fashion designer Mike Amiri.
Both the package and the image of the Range Rover showed the address that he was staying at.
The following morning, at around 4 a.m., four men entered the house through a balcony door at the back. At the time, Jackson was inside the house with a woman named Amelia Rose.
When the intruders entered via the door, one of them reportedly held a gun to Rose's head and told her to be quiet. Meanwhile, the other men ran to the bathroom, where they encountered the rapper and ordered him to hand over his jewelry.
It is believed that Pop Smoke complied at first. However, he put up a fight when they attempted to steal an expensive Rolex.
During the struggle, he was pistol-whipped and then shot three times.
After the men fled the scene, the police were called, and Pop Smoke was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
He was only 20 years old.

The LAPD arrived at the address within six minutes of receiving the 911 call.
Video footage showed Pop Smoke being wheeled out to an ambulance while paramedics performed CPR.
Although a friend of the rapper's was arrested at the scene, he was released when the police determined that he wasn't involved in the shooting.
When Jackson was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Beverly Boulevard, doctors at the hospital attempted to save his life by opening the left side of his chest and removing the bullets. However, their efforts ultimately failed, and he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards at 5.12 a.m.
Amelia Rose was in the bedroom when the intruders entered through the balcony door. When one of the men saw her, he reportedly pointed a gun at her and said, "Shut up, or I will kill you."
At that point, the other men continued towards the bathroom, where they located Jackson.
Rose said that the rapper reacted in surprise and shouted, "What?!"
Following a brief struggle, one of the men shot Jackson. Although he managed to get up and run downstairs, the intruders followed suit and shot him again.
When the shooting happened, Rose believed that the men were also going to kill her and that she would never get to see her mother again.
Once she was confident that the intruders had left, she went downstairs and found the rapper lying on the floor.
In a statement on her Instagram page, Rose told her followers that she was so depressed following the incident that she was unable to stop herself from crying.
She also expressed her belief that Pop Smoke's friend, Mike Dee, was somehow involved in the robbery, as she felt that he had been acting nervously and texting someone that night.
Despite Rose's claims, the police do not believe that Mike Dee was involved.
The day before the shooting, Pop Smoke and his friend, Mike Dee, flaunted their money on Instagram.
One of the photographs showed them posing beside a white Range Rover in the driveway. The number of the house was partially visible on the left.
The rapper also uploaded a picture of a package that had "2033 Hercules Drive" written on it.
It is believed that the Jacksons' killers saw this address on Instagram and decided to rob him.
In July 2020, the LAPD arrested Corey Walker (19), Keandre D. Rodgers (18), and Jaquan Murphy (21) in connection with the murder. Two juveniles were also arrested. However, they were not named.
The case is still ongoing.
These aerial photographs of the house were taken on the day of Pop Smoke's murder.
It is believed that his killers used the second-story balcony at the back.
